BILL NUMBER:S5011A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 879 of the laws of 1939,
relating to a separate union free school district in the town of Mount
Pleasant in the County of Westchester, in relation to clarifying the
authority of the school district to utilize certain property located
outside of its boundaries

PURPOSE OF BILL:

This legislation is necessary to authorize the Hawthorne Cedar Knolls
Union Free School District to continue to provide educational
programming for the Geller House located at 77 Chicago Avenue, Staten
Island, New York 10305.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Chapter 879 of the laws of 1939 is amended by adding a new section
2-a, to authorize the continuance of educational programming to the
Geller House located in Staten Island, New York.

JUSTIFICATION:

The Gellar House is a short term residential diagnostic rapid
intervention center operated by the Jewish Board of Family and
Children's Services in cooperation with the Hawthorne Cedar Knolls
Union Free School District which provides the facility's educational
services. The association is required because the Hawthorne Cedar
Knolls Union Free School District provides year round access to
education to the residents at the Gellar House who are unable to
attend school during the regular public school year when schools are
closed during the summer, holidays, spring break and other times of
recess.

The New York State Department of Education recently identified a
technical inconsistency with this education collaboration and
indicated legislation is necessary to resolve this discrepancy and
allow the Hawthorne Cedar Knolls Union Free School District to
continue educational programming at the Gellar House.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE AND LOCAL GOVERNMENTS:

None

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately
