General Municipal Law

Charter schools are subject to New York Municipal Law Sections 800-806. Charters, therefore must have codes of ethics and conflict of interest policies. In addition, after New York State enacted the Non-Profit Revitalization Act of 2013, schools must also have whistle-blower policies. See below for some exemplars. Schools should continue to consult with their own counsel when creating these policies.

VENDOR/SERVICES LISTS

Vendors/Services List

The Charter Center’s Vendor List is one of the many ways in which we help schools share resources with one another. Last year alone, there were 11,000 hits on over 300 businesses recommended by NY charter schools. We’d like to remind you that all vendors on the list have not only worked with a charter school, but have also received a written recommendation from one or more charters.

FAQs: Open Meetings Law

Did you know that New York City charter schools are subject to the requirements of New York State's Open Meetings Law (OML)? The OML is based on a presumption of access that provides the public with the right to know in advance about meetings of public bodies and then to observe the meetings and deliberations. It applies explicitly to charter schools under the Charter Schools Act of 1998.
