BILL NUMBER:S7376

TITLE OF BILL: An act to direct chancellors of city school districts,
in cities having a population of one million or more, to examine and
assess the feasibility of expanding the number and types of career and
technical education schools and programs within such city school
districts

PURPOSE:

To direct the chancellor of education in New York City to publish a
report on the feasibility of expanding the number and types of various
educational schools that provide instruction in career and technical
fields.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 of the bill directs the chancellor of education in New York
City to examine, evaluate and make recommendations concerning the feasi-
bility, costs, benefits and means of creating more career and technical
education schools and programs.

Section 2 requires the chancellor of education in New York City to
publish a report on the findings of such study to the governor, the
temporary president of the senate, the speaker of the assembly, the
minority leader of the senate, and the minority leader of the assembly.
The report shall include the findings, conclusions, recommendations, and
legislative proposals of the commissioner of education.

Section 3 is the enacting clause.

JUSTIFICATION:

By offering only one path to graduation New York's current education
system is ignoring part of the student population that is inclined to
other types of education and learning experiences. Career Technical
Education (CTE) schools provides students an opportunity for vocational
training. However, currently there are very few CTE schools and as a
result the schools are limited in how many students they can serve. This
study will determine if CTE schools should be expanded.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

None.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

Undetermined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

This act shall take effect immediately.
