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.
This informational brochure, published in October 2010, details 10 quick facts that everyone should know about New York City charter schools. It is a helpful resource for schools to utilize during recruitment as well as for news organizations and the general public who want to know more about charter schools in the city.
This presentation is part of the Application Development Program commissioned by the New York City Charter School Center. Created by charter school expert Cynthia Millinger, Education Plan: Support for Learning assists planning teams in developing an outreach program to involve the parents and local community. Building a program that will pass the selective criteria of the authorizing agencies is a main theme of this presentation.
