BILL NUMBER:S1789D

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

ries for the purpose of providing instruction to students.

ter, and 1700 Old Orchard Place in the village of Valhalla, county of
Westchester for the purpose of providing instruction to students
enrolled in the school district.

Section 2: Ratifies previous Board action regarding lease arrangements
at these sites.

Section 3: Establishes the effective date.

Department. This bill provides authorization through statute.
