Parent Coordinator

Gabriella Ruales

The Parent Coordinator, located in room 149, engages with and involves parents in the
school community by working with the principal, school staff, Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), and community groups. The Parent Coordinator’s role is to provide information, answer questions, help access resources for parents and students, and work closely with the PTA. Answering telephone calls and meeting face-to-face with
parents is a vital role to assist with any issue that may arise or if parents have concerns about the students’ education. 


In addition to every student and family having a NYC School Account, Pupil Path is Fort Hamilton High School’s online communication and information system which allows parents and students to access the student’s academic progress and attendance and to contact school personnel. Pupil Path registration no longer relies on the Pupil Path invitation letter and registration code. ONLY the student account will have access to complete online assignments. IMPORTANT – Parents and students cannot use the same email address when registering. 


Requirements to register without the registration code and Pupil Path letter:
• Guardians and students must download the iOS or Android app
• Guardian or student must have an email address (NEW – for students only if they register through
the app and must be different from parent email. Students do not need an email if registering
through the website using the registration code.
• The user must know the school’s name, student’s ID number, and student’s date of birth.
On your phone, download the Pupil Path app by Illuminate Mobile

The Parent Coordinator is also the Language Access Coordinator. She speaks, writes, and reads Spanish. 


The Parent Coordinator coordinates opportunities for students which she shares on Pupil Path weekly. These opportunities include scholarships, internships, and summer jobs. She also supervises SYEP students during the summer. The Parent Coordinator continues to reach families via phone to assist with Pupil Path, creation code, and other resources for parents. We urge you to take the opportunity to contact the Parent Coordinator, attend PTA meetings, partake in parent workshops, and be involved in your child’s education. 


When parents and school staff work together to support learning, students:
• earn higher grades and test scores,
• enroll in higher-level programs,
• are promoted more and earn more credits,
• adapt better to school and attend more regularly,
• have better social skills and behavior
• graduate and go on to higher education. 


The Parent Coordinator may be contacted via telephone at school (718) 748- 1537, ext. 1457. Please visit our website for PTA meetings and parent workshop dates.
