State Education Department June 2006 Fiscal Report

BR (A) 4

 

            The Board of Regents received the June 2006 Fiscal Report for review and acceptance.

 

            General fund and federal accounts are in structural balance.  It is anticipated that the Office of Elementary, Middle, Secondary and Continuing Education (EMSC) will undertake additional priority activities over coming years and dependent on the extent of which these priorities are paid for in this federal fiscal year, the programs may need to draw upon prior year balances which may create a structural imbalance.

 

            Revenue accounts are in structural balance, allowing for normal reimbursement delays and the planned use of prior year balances.  After expending prior year funds, the Archives Partnership Trust (APT) will use sufficient revenue from the APT endowment, pursuant to Chapter 399 of the Laws of 1998, to maintain structural balance.

 

            MOVED, that the Board of Regents accept the June 2006 State Education Department Fiscal Report as presented.

Cytotechnologist and Certification as a Clinical Laboratory Technician

            MOVED, that sections 52.36, 52.37, and 52.38, and Subparts 79-13, 79-14, and 79-15 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education be added as submitted, effective August 1, 2006, as an emergency action upon a finding by the Board of Regents that such action is necessary for the preservation of the general welfare to ensure that procedures and standards are in place to license individuals by the effective date of the statutory licensure requirement for clinical laboratory practitioners, thereby enabling such practitioners to be licensed in a timely manner to meet the health care needs of residents of New York State.

DISCUSSION ITEMS

 

Commissioner’s Report to the Board

 

            The Commissioner’s written monthly report focused on eight subject areas the Board will vote upon or discuss during the monthly meeting:  Confronting the Greatest Challenges; State Education Department Capacity; Workforce Diversity in the State Education Department; Annual Report on Charter Schools; Student Information System; Clinical Laboratory Technology Professions; Regents Legislative and Budget Proposals; and, State Aid Proposal for 2007-08.

 

            In discussion, Board members commented that under a contingency budget the Roosevelt UFSD is eliminating pre-K programs and athletics and there is a strong need to convene USNY representatives and other local leaders to discuss possible actions to be able to continue these important programs; there should be incentives and not penalties for attendance improvement; there is a need for more coordinated assessment of academic times during the school day and year; and, staff diversity in the Department is not only differences in ethnicity and color but also a diversity of ideas and points of view that are valuable in meeting the needs of the State’s citizenry.

 

 

Development of Regents 2007-08 State Aid Proposal

BR (D) 1

 

            The Board discussed the use of a foundation aid approach for the 2007-08 Regents State Aid proposal, based on a Foundation Amount.

 

            The Foundation Amount represents the cost of educating a student to New York State standards.  It represents an education-oriented, research-based method for determining State Aid needed to meet the standards rather than determining aid based on available funding or on what districts received the prior year.

 

            The Board supported the use of the Foundation Amount in the foundation formula and in September will review a draft conceptual proposal on State Aid to school districts for school year 2007-08.

 

 

2007-2008 Budget Development Process

BR (D) 2

 


           

The Board reviewed the proposed 2007-2008 budget initiatives in preparation for action in September.

 

            Board members commented that the proposal creating the Office of Educational and Academic Technology should be reviewed for the possibility of seeking additional funding; that for clarity the proposal should include a single page listing existing allocations; and, questioned whether any reductions in funding from current locations were being proposed.

 

 

Student Information Repository System

BR (D) 3

 

            The Board received a status report on the implementation of the student information repository system.

 

            The timeline for implementation is as follows:  2005-06 school-year records will be in the system by the end of August for all students in grades 3-8 and ungraded students of equivalent age; all limited English proficient students in grades K-12; all students eligible to take the NYS Alternative assessment (NYSAA); and all K-3 students in schools with Reading First programs.  Files containing high school data submitted through the System for Tracking Educational Progress in August 2006 will be in the repository by December 2006.  Enrollment, demographic, assessment (K-12), and outcome records for the 2006-07 school year for all public school districts and charter schools and participating nonpublic schools will be included by the end of August 2007.

 

            Board members expressed concerns over system security and encouraged future consideration of inclusion of SAT and Advanced Placement data and a concentration on the efforts with higher education to realize a K-16 system.

 

 

Proposed Regents State and Federal Priority Legislation for 2007

BR (D) 4

 

            The Board reviewed its State and Federal priority legislative proposals for 2007 in preparation for approval in September.

 

 

 

            The Board convened at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26, at SUNY Albany, for a two-day retreat, concluding at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 27.  The discussions, facilitated by Chancellor Robert M. Bennett, focused on Board responsibilities and operations, staffing capacities and accountability and Summit progress.

 

 


MISCELLANEOUS


 

Cultural Education Trust Meeting

 

The Cultural Education Committee, acting as the New York State Archives, Library and Museum Trustees, met on June 20.

 

Regent James C. Dawson, Chair of the Regents Cultural Education Committee acting as the NYS Archives / Library / Museum Trustees, submitted the following written report:

 

            Your Committee on Cultural Education Trust had its scheduled meeting on June 20, 2006 in the Librarian’s Room, 7th floor of the Cultural Education Center.  Regents Dawson, Phillips, Bowman, Gardner, Brademas and Tilles were in attendance.

 

            Regent Dawson began by stating that the Cultural Education Committee has been delegated the responsibility on behalf of the Board of Regents to exercise its trusteeship over the State Library, State Museum and State Archives. Following that introduction to the meeting, Regent Dawson introduced the discussion of the legislation passed at the time of the State Budget that created a Cultural Education Trust which includes a Trust Board made up of 5 members, two of them Regents, and chaired by the Chancellor of the Board of Regents.  The Trust Board would oversee a $40 million Trust Fund established to renew the State Museum’s exhibits and to begin work on a secure collection/research facility for the poorly housed collections of the Museum, Archives and Library.

 

            After some review of the language, Regent Phillips suggested concern that the new Trust Board could bypass the Regents in approving the plans for its projects. Only the Commissioner is mentioned as being a “partner” of the Trust Board.  Ms. Huxley and Regent Dawson assured the CE Committee members that no plans will go forward without their review and approval. With a Regent in the Chair and another Regent on the Trust Board, and with the Commissioner’s continuing oversight of the CE staff, who will shape the development of plans, there is little chance that the Board of Regents will be unable to exercise its full authority.  Regent Tilles asked about the current housing of the collections and what those current spaces will be used for, once the collections are moved. The Cultural Education Center will remain the public face of the State Museum, State Archives and State Library. There are several possibilities for the freed up space. Expansion of the Library stacks is planned, with virtually all of its collections remaining on site. Other collection spaces, well over 100,000 square feet, are now leased.

 

            The Regents then reviewed the status of the two projects. There are general conceptual frameworks for the history and natural history galleries. The target date to have substantial new exhibits on the Museum floor is 2009, the Quadricentennial Celebration of Henry Hudson’s voyage. The Dormitory Authority is updating the potential sites for the collection/research facility and has a fiscal consultant looking into the best options for financing it. Once a site and an architectural firm is chosen, the time line is about three years.

 

            A detailed discussion of the budgets for the Archives, Library and Museum and the source of the funds that support their operations then ensued. The major part of the funding comes from the recording fees of county clerks, an amount that can fluctuate significantly depending on the real estate market and other factors that we cannot control. The Regents agreed on the need for close tracking of the fund and of our expenditures. Regent Tisch asked whether the Cultural Education Trust Board would be expected to raise additional funds beyond the $40 million Trust they will oversee. Ms. Huxley said that their role included promoting the institutions, helping them gain   greater visibility and helping with fund-raising. 

 

The Committee agreed with Regent Dawson’s proposal that there be a day long meeting of the Cultural Education Committee in its trusteeship role in October, possibly a joint meeting with the Trust Board if the members have been appointed. The Regents then split into groups that each visited one of the three institutions. They saw some of the education programs underway and were able to look in depth at one set of programs. After a short report out on the visits, the meeting was adjourned.

Professional Discipline Cases

 

            Your Committee recommends that the reports of the Regents Review Committees, including rulings, findings of fact, determinations as to guilt, and recommendations, by unanimous or majority vote, contained in those reports which have been distributed to you, be accepted in 19 cases.  In addition, your Committee recommends, upon the recommendation of the Committee on the Professions, that 26 consent order applications and 14 surrender applications be granted.

 

            These recommendations are made following the review of 59 cases involving 15 registered professional nurses, 14 licensed practical nurses, seven pharmacists, five dentists, five licensed practical nurses who are also registered professional nurses, one certified public accountant, one certified social worker, one chiropractor, one licensed clinical social worker, one licensed master social worker, one podiatrist, one speech-language pathologist, and one veterinarian.
