Greetings Fashion Families from your Principal Daryl Blank,
People say that it takes a village to raise a child - the village at the High School of Fashion Industries is very strong with dedicated staff members, supportive parents and community support through the Advisory Board. The key statistics of the school - Progress Report grades, Graduation Rates and College Readiness - show the impressive results of this collaboration.
The reason behind this amazing success is the dual focus on academics and our career and technical majors that include Fashion Design, Graphics & Illustration, Fashion Merchandising Management and Visual Merchandising.
Our learning community strives to provide a well-rounded balanced approach by providing academic support and addressing the cultural, and social needs of this diverse community. Our chief priority is to provide opportunities that will foster growth, develop leadership, and interpersonal skills. Through the appropriate implementation of academic, college and career readiness, and social-emotional support, it is our goal to nurture personal and academic behaviors that will promote lasting success.
Did you know that the High School of Fashion Industries:
Has a 90% graduation rate with nearly all of our graduates moving onto college
Dedicated to students learning the business of fashion so they are College and Career Ready
Has an Advisory Board of fashion industry professionals from companies Swarovski, Kleinfeld Bridal, Citizen, Saks Fifth Avenue, Barneys, The International Center of Photography, and Adidas that raise money for the school and individual student scholarships, provide work-based internships and support the school's curriculum
I am thrilled to embark on this journey with you and my door is always open.
Jupiter Grades is an online grade book that teachers use to input each assignment aligned to the school grading system. Jupiter Grades allows parents and students to check their grades and assignments in each individual class. Parents and students each have their own unique log-in. Jupiter Grades is accessible both by a web browser or your smart phone. It is a great way to keep up with assignments, grades, and communication between parents and teachers. For new students, login account information with temporary passwords will be either mailed or sent home with students during the first week of school.

Title I Committee
The High School of Fashion Industries School Leadership Team (SLT) is made up of members of every constituency within the school - parents, students, teachers and supervisors. The School Leadership Team meets every month to discuss important issues that impact the school. Every New York City school is required to have a School Leadership Team in accordance with Chancellor's Regulation A-655.
Here are some important things you need to know about the School Leadership Team at Fashion Industries High School:
• The team meets one time every month usually on the third Wednesday of the month
• The meetings are scheduled between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
• Every member of the team gets an opportunity to express their views on the important issues facing the school. The group will be discussing and make recommendations to the Principal regarding the school budget and education plans.
The SLT is responsible for developing the school's Comprehensive Educational Plan (CEP) and ensuring that it is aligned with the school-based budget. SLTs must use a consensus-based decision-making process as their primary means of decision-making.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT SCHOOL LUNCH
Your child’s lunch application is now due. This is important to make sure your child pays or does not pay the appropriate amount of money for lunch. In addition, Title I funding in New York City is tied to the information that parents/guardians provide on the yearly lunch application. The High School of Fashion Industries receives nearly $1 million in Title I funding each year.
