Procedural History

 

Beginning in July 2003, the Regents have annually approved the registration of new public schools at their July meeting.

 

Background Information

 

          Commissionerís Regulations require districts that seek to register a public elementary, intermediate, middle, junior high or high school to submit a petition to the Board of Regents. Commissionerís Regulations require petitions for schools opening the following school year to be submitted by June 15; however, the Commissioner may waive this timeline for good cause.  This year the Department received submissions after June 15 from the Pittsford Central School District and the Royalton Hartland Central School District. Based upon the district submitting a petition and supporting materials certifying the districtís commitment to operate a school in compliance with applicable statutes, rules, and regulations relating to public schools and in compliance with applicable building codes, the Commissioner recommends that the following schools be registered:
