AN ACT to direct the commissioner of education to  establish  an  online
  learning  advisory committee to make recommendations on establishing a
  statewide online and blended learning program

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative intent. The legislature recognizes that there
is a demonstrated need to reevaluate the delivery of  education  in  New
York  state  in  light of educational advancements and a more technolog-
ically driven economy. In light of academic discrepancies for  those  in
the  most  rural  and underrepresented areas within the state as well as
the unstable economic times, we believe that there is a need to  advance
emerging  technologies  and the potential for implementation of a state-
wide online and blended learning program. This will provide an  opportu-
nity  to  highlight  the  state's most successful programs and make them
universally accessible. A statewide online and blended learning  program
will  not  only have the potential to provide equal educational opportu-
nities to the most remote areas of the state, but help all  students  as
they transition into a competitive marketplace.
  S  2. The commissioner of education, in consultation with the New York
state broadband program office of the empire  state  development  corpo-
ration, the New York state energy research and development authority and
the  public service commission, shall establish an online learning advi-
sory committee which shall develop recommendations for establishment  of
a statewide online and blended learning program. Such advisory committee
shall  be composed of 12 members appointed by the commissioner of educa-
tion. Provided that three members shall be appointed upon the  recommen-
dation of the governor, three members shall be appointed upon the recom-
mendation  of  the  temporary president of the senate, and three members
