Guide to 2014 Changes in State Law

On April 1, 2014, New York State lawmakers approved a package of legislation that changed the legal landscape for New York City charter schools. To help the charter sector understand the new landscape, the Charter Center offers A Guide to New Provisions in State Law Affecting New York City Charter Schools. This Guide summarizes new provisions in state law related to:
  • Per Pupil Funding
  • Facility Access Process (including Co-location Request Template)
  • Co-location Protections
  • Use of Co-located Space without Cost
  • Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK)
  • City Comptroller Audits
  • Provisions for Dissolution
Please note that the Charter Center does not offer legal advice; each charter school should consult its own legal counsel to understand how the new laws may relate to its own unique circumstances.
