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.
Emergencies in schools must be addressed in an expeditious and effective manner. Schools are at risk of acts of violence, natural, and manmade disasters. To address these threats, the State of New York has enacted the Safe Schools Against Violence in Education (SAVE) law. Project SAVE is a comprehensive planning effort that addresses prevention, response and recovery with respect to a variety of emergencies in schools.
Individual charter schools are required by the NYSED to complete 2 safety plans: a District- Wide Safety Plan and a Building-Level Safety Plan. These plans differ as defined here taken directly from the NY Safe Schools website.

Here are updated timelines for the submission of applications to establish charter schools in New York State authorized by NYS Board of Regents and the SUNY Board of Trustees with a plan to open in 2019.
Each charter school receives a grant for textbooks, library books and software under the New York State Textbook Law (NYSTL). The grant is administered by the NYC DOE, so all purchases with these funds must be processed through the FAMIS purchasing portal.
