2. Sign up for the SHSAT test or LaGuardia Audition using the MySchools. 
Have you signed in to your MySchools account? Did you get the pin letter in the mail? The DOE sent out letters to all 8th grade families. They mailed them to the address listed in ATS. If you did not get this letter but would still like to create an account, please know that they have a number for people to call for support. Contact: 718-935-2009 When: Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm

*I gave this number to a parent today, who said they were very fast. Other times, depending on call volumne, they can have a longer wait time. 

Starting on Monday, September 9, families
 will be able to register their child for the SHSAT and/or LaGuardia High School auditions in the family-facing MySchools site ( myschools.nyc).
