AN  ACT  to amend the education law, in relation to the establishment of
  regional secondary schools

  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 that given the current  fiscal  climate  in  this  state,  many
school districts, particularly small, rural districts, are threatened by
a  decline in educational opportunities and programs for their students.
School districts are  seeking  new  models  of  delivering  services  to
students that are more cost-effective and efficient, in order to sustain
or  enhance  the quality of services and to maintain or expand the scope
of services offered to students. The legislature  recognizes  that  many
high  schools  in  the state are experiencing financial limitations that
may impair their ability to offer students the same range or quality  of
courses  that  other  high  schools may provide. In order to ensure that
these districts continue to offer their students advanced  course  work,
districts  should  be  afforded  the opportunity to establish a regional
secondary school. Under this new model of delivering services, districts
will be able to streamline programs and  services,  increase  resources,
and  increase  their  purchasing  power  through  shared services. These
resultant cost  savings  will  allow  money  to  flow  into  educational
programs  and services for students which will, in turn, help to improve
student performance and meet college and career readiness.
  S 2. The education law is amended by adding a new article 39-A to read
as follows:
                              ARTICLE 39-A
                       REGIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOLS

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD08206-01-3
