The Administration for Child Services (ACS) is working to build a stronger partnership with charter schools to support students in the child welfare program. ACS’s Office of Education Support and Policy Planning partnered with the Charter Center to demystify the child welfare system and launch discussions on collaborative approaches specific to charter schools.
Effective September 1, 2016, the New York State Department of Health (DOH) announced that schools are subject to new immunization requirements. Charter schools are required to comply with these requirements and should refer to the DOH’s new 2017-18 guide on required immunizations (https://www.health.ny.gov/publications/2370.pdf).
