On April 1, 2014, New York State lawmakers approved a package of legislation that changed the legal landscape for New York City charter schools.
Under the revised charter law, charter schools are now subject to New York Municipal Law 800-806. Due to this new requirement, charter schools may need to revise their codes of ethics and conflict of interest policies.
New York State’s law on charter schools has changed in important ways. In addition to raising the statewide cap on charter schools, the revised law has implications for charter school approvals, renewals, governance, programs, enrollment, facilities, and more.
