Field Support Centers

The text on this page is in draft form. Updated language forthcoming.

Field Support Centers (FSCs) provide instructional and operational support to schools. Across the five boroughs, there are eight FSCs; seven are geographically based and one citywide Affinity group. FSCs allocate resources and supports to schools in collaboration with the Superintendents' offices, as aligned to Central policies. The three approaches in which FSCs provide support are through policy and strategic guidance, professional learning and compliance.

Policy/Strategic Guidance

  • Focus on schools when making central policy decisions
  • Support school leadership in implementing their instructional vision
  • Work, in partnership with Superintendent's office, to identify and develop school support strategy
  • Follow up with schools to determine metrics of success and shape policy into the following school year

Professional Learning

  • Improve practice and provide subject matter expertise for staff and schools
  • Foster partnerships among schools and staff to share content and best practices


  • Support schools to adhere to mandates and policies in a timely fashion
  • Answer school compliance inquiries and provide subject matter expertise
  • Build capacity within schools and their staff in responding to both internal and external needs and requests
