AN  ACT  to  amend  the  education  law, in relation to continuing early
  college high school programs 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 school
programs 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 an Associate's
or 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 recog-
