BILL NUMBER:S3988

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
requiring charter schools employee salaries to be less than the salary
of the chancellor of the department of education

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: The amendment adds a new section 2858.
§ 2858 requires that no employee of a charter school located in the
city of New York shall earn a salary greater than the chancellor of
the city school district. It also requires that employees of a charter
school located outside of New York City shall not earn a salary
greater than the school superintendent of the district where the
charter school is located.

JUSTIFICATION: Under the current law, there has been a great deal of
controversy regarding the extremely high salaries earned by executives
of many charter schools. This bill solves this controversy by imposing
a limit on the pay of charter school employees.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

This bill has been introduced in the Assembly.

FISCAL IMPLICATION:

None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
