BILL NUMBER:S6064

TITLE OF BILL:

An act
to amend the education law, in relation to authorizing the appointment
of supervising staff in the city school district of the city of Syracuse
by the superintendent of such district

PURPOSE:

To authorize the Superintendent of Schools for the Syracuse City
School District to appoint supervisory personnel.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1, amends Subdivision 2 of section 2554 of the education law,
as amended by section 2 of part B of chapter 88 of the laws of 2000
by adding "Syracuse" to the list of districts where the
superintendent may create, abolish, maintain and consolidate
associate, assistant and district superintendents, and other
supervising staff positions who are excluded from collective
bargaining representation, within budgeted amounts.

Section 2, amends Subdivision 6 of section 2566 of the education law,
as amended by section 18 of subpart F of part C of the laws of 2011
by adding "Syracuse" to the list of districts where the
superintendent may appoint associate, assistant and district
superintendents and other supervising staff positions who are
excluded from collective bargaining representation, within budgeted
amounts.

Section 3, amends Subdivision 3 of section 2573 of the education law,
as amended by section 4 of part B of chapter 88 of the laws of 2000 by
adding "Syracuse" to the list of districts where associate, assistant
and district superintendents, and other supervising staff who are
excluded from the right to bargain collectively shall be appointed by
the district superintendent, within budgeted amounts.

Section 4, established the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Under current law, the Syracuse Schools Superintendent is restricted
from making central office appointments unless such individuals are
either certified administrators or approved under State and local
civil service requirements. This legislation would bring the Syracuse
Schools Superintendent's authority in line with statutory permission
already granted to the superintendents of both the Buffalo and
Rochester school districts regarding the appointment of certain
central office personnel. All such appointments would be subject to
budgetary amounts approved by the Syracuse Board of Education.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

New Bill.


FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Within budgeted amounts.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.

ment  has  to  his credit thirty or more years of city service including
