AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to the  leasing  of  real
  property by boards of cooperative educational services


  Section 1. Subparagraph (a) of paragraph p of subdivision 4 of section
1950 of the education law, as amended by chapter  602  of  the  laws  of
1994, is amended to read as follows:
  (a) To rent suitable land, classrooms, offices or buildings upon or in
which  to maintain and conduct such cooperative educational services and
administrative offices for a period not to exceed [ten] TWENTY years and
to improve, alter, equip and furnish such land, classrooms,  offices  or
buildings  in  a  suitable manner for such purposes (1) before executing
any lease, the board shall adopt  a  resolution  determining  that  such
agreement is in the best financial interests of the supervisory district
and  stating  the  basis  of  that determination; (2) the rental payment
shall not be more than the fair market value as determined by the board;
and (3) upon the consent of the commissioner, renewal of such lease  may
be  made for a period of up to ten years. Nothing contained herein shall
prevent the board from entering into a lease  agreement  which  provides
for  the  cancellation of the same by such board upon: (i) a substantial
increase or decrease in pupil enrollment; or (ii) a  substantial  change
in  the  needs  and  requirements  of a board of cooperative educational
services with respect to facilities; or (iii)  any  other  change  which
substantially  affects  the  needs or requirements of a board of cooper-
ative educational services or the community in which it is  located.  No
lease  or  other  contract  for  the occupancy of such land, classrooms,
offices or buildings shall be enforceable against the board  of  cooper-
ative  educational  services  unless  and until the same shall have been
approved in writing by the commissioner.
  S 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
