 AN  ACT  authorizing  and  directing  the  commissioner  of education to

   THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-
 BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:
 
   Section 1. The commissioner of  education  is  hereby  authorized  and
 directed to conduct a study on the number of children who are caregivers
 and  how  being  a  caregiver  impacts the child's education. "Caregiver
 children" shall be defined as students with sick, disabled,  or  elderly
 relatives that such students care for outside of school. The commission-
 er  of  education  shall give recommendations based on the study's find-
 ings. Such study shall include, but not be limited to:
   (a) the number of caregiver children within the state;
   (b) the amount of time caregiver children spend caring for relatives;
   (c) how being a caregiver child impacts the child's education;
   (d) the circumstances that lead to a child becoming a caregiver child;
 and
   (e) any recommendations on how  to  reduce  the  negative  educational
 impacts of being a caregiver child.
   §  2.  Within  one year of the effective date of this act, the commis-
 sioner of education shall submit  a  report  of  his  or  her  findings,
 conclusions and recommendations to the governor, the temporary president
 of the senate, the speaker of the assembly, and the chairs of the senate
 and  assembly  committees  on  education. Such report shall also include
 such legislative proposals  as  such  commissioner  deems  necessary  to
 implement his or her recommendations.
   § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
