BILL NUMBER:S6558

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to provide for the payment of universal prekindergarten program aid for
the 2009-2010 school year to the Dansville central school district

PURPOSE:
This bill provides for the payment of universal prekindergarten
program aid for the 2009-2010 school year to the Dansville central
school district.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
Section 1 of this bill provides that the failure of Dansville central
school district to timely file its 2009-2010 notice of fully
implemented universal prekindergarten program form shall not prohibit
the education department from making payment of such aid in a timely
manner, provided that the school district submits this form on or
before April 1, 2012.

Section 2 provides the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
While filing an application to receive Universal Pre-Kindergarten
(UPK) funding from the New York State Education Department (NYSED),
an error was made by the Dansville central School District. This
error, resulting in a failure to submit the "2009-2010 Notice of
Fully Implemented UPK Program," was immediately corrected.

This bill would allow the NYSED to forgive this error and allow
Dansville Central School District to recoup the much-needed UPK aid
that it expected.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Minimal to the state.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
