AN ACT to amend the retirement and social security law, in  relation  to

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

  Section 1. Section 211 of the retirement and social  security  law  is
amended by adding a new subdivision 4-a to read as follows:
  4-A.  (A)  EXCEPT  AS PROVIDED IN PARAGRAPH (B) OF THIS SUBDIVISION, A
RETIRED PERSON EMPLOYED UNDER THIS SECTION BY A SCHOOL DISTRICT TO SERVE
AS THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS FOR  SUCH  SCHOOL  DISTRICT  SHALL  NOT
SERVE  AS  SUCH SUPERINTENDENT FOR MORE THAN ONE YEAR.  ON OR BEFORE THE
CONCLUSION OF SUCH ONE YEAR PERIOD SUCH SCHOOL DISTRICT SHALL  FILL  THE
POSITION  OF  SUPERINTENDENT  OF  SCHOOLS WITH A NON-RETIRED PERSON ON A
PERMANENT BASIS.
  (B) THE  COMMISSIONER  OF  EDUCATION  MAY  GRANT  A  WAIVER  FROM  THE
PROVISIONS  OF  PARAGRAPH (A) OF THIS SUBDIVISION TO ANY SCHOOL DISTRICT
THAT DEMONSTRATES TO SUCH COMMISSIONER THAT AFTER DUE DILIGENCE A  SUIT-
ABLE CANDIDATE TO FILL THE POSITION OF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS HAS NOT
BEEN  FOUND  AND  THAT COMPLIANCE WITH PARAGRAPH (A) OF THIS SUBDIVISION
SHALL CONSTITUTE SUBSTANTIAL  HARDSHIP  TO  SUCH  SCHOOL  DISTRICT.  THE
COMMISSIONER OF EDUCATION SHALL DETERMINE THE MANNER AND FORM IN WHICH A
SCHOOL DISTRICT SHALL APPLY FOR A WAIVER PURSUANT TO THIS PARAGRAPH.
  S  2.  This  act shall take effect on the ninetieth day after it shall
have become a law.
