BILL NUMBER:S4066

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 Yonkers by the superintendent of such district

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To authorize the Superintendent of
Schools for the Yonkers Public School District to appoint supervisory
personnel.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:

Section 1, amends Subdivision 2 of section 2554 of the education law,
as amended by section 2 of part 13 of chapter 88 of the laws of 2000
by adding Yonkers" 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 Yonkers 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 Yonkers" 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, establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Under current law, the Yonkers 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 Yonkers Schools Superintendents authority in line with
statutory permission already granted to the superintendents of
Buffalo, Rochester, and recently Syracuse school districts regarding
the appointment of certain central office personnel. All such
appointments would be subject to budgetary amounts approved by the
Yonkers Board of Education.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill. Chapter 27 of the Laws of 2012
extended this authority to the Syracuse Superintendent of Schools.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Within budgeted amounts.

EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately

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