BILL NUMBER:S5135 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to budgets of boards of cooperative educational services PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: This bill amends Sections 1950 and 1951 of the Education Law to allow the Commissioner of the New York State Education Department to promulgate rules and regulations that would authorize BOCES to operate a multi-year budget for program, capital and/or administrative expenditures provided the Commissioner determines this would result in greater efficiencies to the component district(s) JUSTIFICATION: BOCES were created by the Legislature in 1948 "for the purpose of carrying out a program of shared educational services in the schools for the supervisory district..." Since their creation, BOCES have served as an important vehicle for helping school districts operate in an effective and efficient manner. As districts around the State face significant fiscal and educational constraints, it is imperative that BOCES be given greater authority to help the many component districts they serve while reducing or eliminating the impediments that make this goal difficult.
