The part of the government of New York City that manages the city's public school system is the department of education nyc. The City School District of the City of New York (New York City public schools) is the largest school system in the United States with over 1.1 million students taught in more than 1,700 separate schools. The department covers all five boroughs of New York City, and has an annual budget of nearly 25 billion dollars. New York City public schools citywide implemented a mathematics "core curriculum" based on New York State standards for grades K-10, beginning in 2003. Students must earn at least six credits in mathematics to graduate high school. Students must score at least 65 on a Regents math exam in order to receive a regents diploma. The city set out to eliminate whole milk from cafeteria lunch menus and took the further step of banning low-fat flavored milks in 2006. The DOE banned bake sales, though some schools continue to have them with frequency in October 2006. he DOE cited the high sugar content of baked sale goods and that 40% of NYC students are obese. Meanwhile vending machines in the schools operated by Frito Lay and Snapple continue to sell high processed empty calorie foot.

After experiments with hiring uncertified teachers to fulfill a massive teacher shortage failed to produce acceptable results, and responding to pressure from the nyc board of regents and the No Child Behind Left Act the DOE instituted a number of innovative programs for teacher recruitment, beginning in 2000. n the course of school reorganizations, some veteran teachers have lost their positions. They then enter a pool of substitutes, called the Absnt Teacher Reserve. The Department and the city's teacher union reached an agreement to create financial incentives for principals of new schools to hire ATR teachers and guidance counselors on November 19, 2008. The Department of Education has an annual budget of nearly $25 billion for its 1.1 million students. New York spends $19,076 each year per student according to Census Data, which is more than any other state compared to the national average of $10,560. 3 billion dollars of the budget goes to Non City schools. This includes $1.09 billion to pre-school special education services and $725.3 million for School-Age non DOE contract special education. Another $71 million goes to non public schools such as parochial schools and $1.04 billion is paid for the 70 thousand people attending charter schools. About 40% of students in the city's public school system live in households where a language other than English is spoken, and one-third of all New Yorkers were born in another country. The city's Department of Education translates report cards, registration forms, system-wide alerts, and documents on health and policy initiatives for parents into a number of European and Asian Countries. The specialized high schools tend to be disproportionately Asian. New York's Specialized High School Institute is an after-school program for students in late middle school.
