BILL NUMBER:S4723

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
directing the education department to issue certain state aid to the
Central Islip union free school district for certain capital
construction projects

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:

This bill would direct the education department to consider plans
submitted for seven specified construction projects to have been
submitted in a timely manner and to review such plans and
specifications. If approved, the costs for the projects shall be
deemed valid and the amount shall be paid to the school district.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Sections One and Two direct the Department of Education to review
plans for seven specific building projects throughout the Central
Islip union free school district, and to disburse state reimbursement
to the school district for the costs incurred despite any failure to
comply with the filing deadline for the final building cost reports
upon which approval of such projects was contingent.
Section Three is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

In order for a school to operate at an efficient level to educate our
children, the school structures must be safe and reliable. This
requires constant upkeep and maintenance, the funding for which
schools rely greatly upon the State Department of Education to
provide. The Central Islip union free school district undertook eight
general construction products to expand classrooms and make additions
and alterations to all eight of their school buildings. The school
district was approved for funding to undertake this construction,
contingent upon their submission of final building cost reports which
were due in June of 2006. Because of office transitions during the
time period that the reports came due they were not filed on time.
Upon discovery of the unfiled reports, the school district was
diligent in filing the reports at that time. Unfortunately, the
reports were filed two years late and the State education department
denied the school district funding for the already completed
products, demanding that the school district repay any monies already
received for these projects. This legislation would direct the
Education Department to consider these projects as though the final
building cost reports had been submitted in a timely manner.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.


EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.

AN  ACT directing the education department to issue certain state aid to
  the Central Islip union  free  school  district  for  certain  capital
  construction projects

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

  Section 1.  Legislative intent. The legislature hereby finds that  the
Central  Islip  Union  Free  School  District  approved  several capital
improvement projects  which  were  designated  by  the  State  Education
Department  as  project  numbers 0002-006, 0003-008, 0005-007, 0006-005,
0007-006, 0008-007 and 0004-005. In  addition, the projects were  eligi-
ble  for  certain  state  aid. The legislature further finds that due to
ministerial error, required filings for eligibility for  such  aid  were
not made by the district in a timely manner making the district ineligi-
ble  for  certain  aid.  The legislature further finds that without such
aid, the capital improvement projects will impose an  additional,  unan-
ticipated hardship on district taxpayers.
  S  2.    All the acts done and proceedings heretofore had and taken or
caused to be had and taken  by  the  Central  Islip  Union  Free  School
District  and by all its officers or agents relating to or in connection
with certain final cost reports to be filed  with  the  state  education
department   for   projects   0002-006,  0003-008,  0005-007,  0006-005,
0007-006, 0008-007 and 0004-005, and all acts  incidental  thereto,  are
hereby legalized, validated, ratified and confirmed, notwithstanding any
failure  to comply with the approval and filing provisions of the educa-
tion law or any other law or any  other  statutory  authority,  rule  or

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.

regulation, in relation to any omissions, error, defect, irregularity or
illegality  in  such proceedings had and taken and provided further that
any amount due and payable  to  the  Central  Islip  Union  Free  School
District  for  school  years  prior  to  the 2012--2013 school year as a
result of this act shall be paid pursuant to the provisions of paragraph
c of subdivision 5 of section 3604 of the education law.
  S 3. The education department  is  hereby  directed  to  consider  the
approved  costs  of the aforementioned project as valid and proper obli-
gations of the Central Islip Union Free School District.
  S 4.  This act shall take effect immediately.
