AN ACT to amend the education law, in  relation  to  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 most cost-effective and efficient, in order to sustain
or  enhance  the  quality of services to maintain or expand the scope of
services offered to students.
  The legislature recognizes that many secondary 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 secondary
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
SECTION 1920.  DEFINITIONS.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                           LBD10174-01-3
