Introduced by Sen. LAVALLE -- (at request of the State Education Depart-
  ment)  --  read  twice  and  ordered  printed,  and when printed to be
  committed to the Committee on Higher Education

AN ACT to amend the education law,  in  relation  to  the  licensure  of
  private  proprietary  schools; and providing for the repeal of certain
  provisions upon the expiration thereof

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1. The article heading of article 101 of the education law is
amended to read as follows:
                       LICENSED PRIVATE [TRADE AND
              CORRESPONDENCE] CAREER SCHOOLS AND CERTIFIED
                  ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE SCHOOLS
  S 2. Legislative intent. The Legislature  hereby  finds  and  declares
that  there  is  a  growing need to protect students enrolled in certain
non-degree granting proprietary schools from inadequate job training and
school closure, which disrupts the academic progress of  these  students
and jeopardizes their tuition funds. Given the growing needs and demands
of  business and industry, the Legislature further finds and declares it
necessary to align the state education department's current oversight of
these schools with these significantly increasing needs. The Legislature
finds it necessary for the department to review these  schools'  curric-
ulums  and instruction to help ensure students receive adequate training
to obtain employment and to successfully perform their occupation in the
workplace. It also finds it necessary for the department to intervene in
certain school closures where teach out plans  may  not  be  efficiently
implemented and students may not complete training.
  The  Legislature  also finds it necessary for the department to review
these schools for financial viability to prevent school  closure,  which
will,  in  turn,  preserve  tuition  funds and federal and state funding
sources. This act is also necessary to increase the  accountability  and
