AN  ACT  to  amend  the  education  law, in relation to continuing early
  college high schools in the state

  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 and
declares it necessary  to  preserve  and  continue  early  college  high
schools  in  the  State  that  provide various students, including those
traditionally underrepresented in  post-secondary  education,  with  the
opportunity  to  access college-level courses and college degree credits
at the high school level with the combined support of  high  school  and
college  staff  and resources. The early college high school program not
only increases these students' access  to  higher  education,  but  also
reduces potential costs for these students in completing college degrees
by  allowing  them to either complete a degree upon graduation from high
school  or  to  apply   their   earned   college   credits   towards   a
Baccalaureate's  degree.  This innovative program provides incentives to
high school students to proceed to college and to earn a college  degree
by  accelerating  their  overall  completion  of  such a degree. It also
better prepares them for college-level coursework, which, will in  turn,
increase  their academic performance. Ultimately, this program increases
graduation rates both at the high school and college levels.
  The Legislature hereby finds and  declares  it  necessary  to  provide
funding  for these schools to ensure that they continue in operation and
continue to provide students  with  these  valuable  services.  Although
early  college high schools are public high schools, the cost of provid-
ing college-level courses, including the costs of instruction at a part-
nering college and college-level books and materials, exceeds the  costs
of  a  traditional  public  school.    At the same time, the Legislature
