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.
