BILL NUMBER:S1505

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the education law, in relation to granting school districts the
power to accept and solicit gifts and donations

PURPOSE: This bill provides authorization to school
districts to
accept and or solicit gifts and donations.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1503-a is added to the
education law in
order to allow school districts to accept and solicit gifts and
donations. The receipt of such gifts, donations, contributions or any
other funds will be disregarded for all apportionments, computations,
and determinations of state aid

JUSTIFICATION: Schools districts throughout the state
are constantly
stretching their state allocated funds to offer students the best
possible education. Too often, school administrators have to make
tough choices that sacrifice one project or program for another.

Currently school districts are allowed to accept gifts, donations and
contributions, but are not allowed to seek them out. This legislation
would allow school districts to actively solicit gifts and donations.
Acceptance of any such gift would not effect school districts'
apportionments, computations and determinations for state aid purposes.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2011.12: S.926; 2009-10: S.579;
2008: S.4379;
2003.2004: S.774; 2001-02: S.3643

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
