BILL NUMBER:S6330

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the civil service law, in relation to
the administration of certain director of facility positions

PURPOSE: To clarify the purview of municipal civil service
commissions with regard to promotions for the school district
positions of Director of Facilities I, II and III.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section one of the bill amends subdivision 5 of section 17 of the
Civil Service Law to clarify that the statewide examinations for the
school district positions of director of facilities do not affect the
ability of municipal civil service commissions to hold promotional
examinations and create promotional lists from such examinations for
those positions. The qualifications for promotion to those positions
that are established by a municipal civil service commission must be
consistent with the statewide eligibility criteria for those positions
established by the Department of Civil Service.

Section two of the bill provides that this act shall take effect
immediately.

EXISTING LAW: Currently, the Department of Civil Service is required
to develop a statewide open competitive examination for the positions
of Director of Facilities I, II and III in school districts.

JUSTIFICATION:

Chapter 403 of the Laws of 2011 provided that the Department of Civil
Service would develop and administer a statewide examination for the
school district positions of Director of Facilities I, II and III so
that school districts would have more candidates to consider for the
available positions. Chapter 403 did not address promotions within the
Director of Facilities titles. This bill clarifies the role of
municipal civil service commissions in the promotion process. This
clarification will pave the way for the administration of the new
statewide examination and promotional examinations based upon the new
statewide criteria for the Director of Facilities positions.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

ria  for examination of potential candidates for the positions of direc-
tor of facilities I, II, & III based on qualifications and experience in

CONSISTENT  WITH  STATEWIDE  ELIGIBILITY  CRITERIA  AS DETERMINED BY THE
