AN  ACT  to  amend the education law, in relation to the state office of
  religious and independent schools establishment act

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-

that  is  is  incumbent  on  the  state  to continue to support New York
students who attend these schools. The  legislature  further  recognizes
that  while religious and independent school students are included in an
array of state and federal programs intended to benefit students in  all

health and safety measures, academic intervention, professional develop-

or independent schools are located or the school districts in which such
religious and independent school students reside. The  legislature  also

districts  charged  with  administering  services for students over whom
such  districts  have  little  direct  responsibility.  The  legislature
further  recognizes  the  inefficiencies  that  exist  in  administering
programs  to  benefit  students  attending  religious  and   independent
schools.  Therefore,  the  legislature recognizes the need to create the
state office for religious and independent schools for  the  purpose  of
