Are you in the midst of applying to kindergarten for next fall? Insideschools.org is hosting a free event to help you navigate the process.

Clara Hemphill along with the Insideschools staff members and other school experts will offer guidance about what to look for in an elementary school, how and when to register, and how to explore your options if you're not happy with the schools in your neighborhood.

We'll cover gifted and talented programs, magnet schools, unzoned schools, special education and options for children learning to speak English.

Panelists will include Recy Dunn, head of the Education Department's charter school office, Robin Aronow of School Search NYC and a representative from the DOE's magnet program office.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation.

The event is co-sponsored by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and the Center for New York City Affairs at The New School (http://www.newschool.edu/milano/nycaffairs/). It's free but you must RSVP: centernyc@newschool.edu. See our calendar for more details.

Can't make it? We'll be live-streaming the event on Insideschools.org.

Admission is free but you must RSVP: centernyc@newschool.edu.
