BILL NUMBER: S1789

TITLE OF BILL :

An act to amend chapter 118 of the laws of 1969, relating to a
separate union free school district in the town of Greenburgh in the
county of Westchester, to clarify the authority of the Greenburgh
North Castle Union Free School District to lease certain property
located outside of its boundaries


PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL :

This legislation will authorize the Greenburgh North Castle Union Free
School District to continue leasing property outside of district
boundaries for the purpose of providing instruction to students.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :

Section 1: Authorizes the District to lease property located at one
hundred eight Shonnard Place in the city of Yonkers for the purpose of
providing instruction to students enrolled in the school district.

Section 2: Ratifies previous Board action regarding lease arrangements
at the site.

Section 3: Establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION :

The Greenburgh North Castle Union Free School District is a special
act district that currently operates programs to serve special needs
students. In 2005, the district opened the Greenburgh Academy in
Yonkers which now serves over 170 students. Since the present location
is outside of the District's physical boundaries, the authorization to
lease space for the Academy has been secured through a waiver issued
by the State Education Department. This legislation will negate the
need for a waiver from the Education Department while ensuring that
important student services will continue without interruption.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY :

New bill.

FISCAL IMPACT :

None.

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE :
This act shall take effect immediately.
