SUMMARY

 

Issue for Decision  (Consent Agenda)

 

Should the Board of Regents approve the registration of seven nonpublic high schools?

 

Reason(s) for Consideration

 

Required by State statute.

 

Proposed Handling

 

This question will come before the full Board on July 21 for action.

 

Procedural History

 

The Board of Regents annually takes action on the registration of nonpublic high schools.

 

Background Information

 

Nonpublic schools that have a senior class for the first time submit an Application For Nonpublic Secondary School Registration and are visited by a staff member from the Office for Nonpublic Schools.  Approved registration of a nonpublic high school allows the school to issue valid diplomas and administer State examinations on-site, and the school becomes a member of the University of the State of New York.

 

 

 

Recommendation

 

VOTED:  That the following schools, which participated in the 2004-2005 nonpublic high school registration program, be registered:
