A01625 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A1625A
 
SPONSOR: Zebrowski (MS)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to full day kindergarten   PURPOSE OF THE BILL: This bill expands the full day kindergarten conversion aid to a five year transition program.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section one of the bill amends section 3602 of the education law as it relates to expanded full day kindergarten conversion aid. The enhanced incentive will provide school districts that have half day or no kinder- garten programs in the 2016-17 school year with funding over a five year period to transition to full day. The aid would be equal to the current conversion aid in the first year, 80% of the aid in year two, 60% of the aid in year three, 40% of the aid in year four and 20% of the aid in year five. Section two of the bill relates to the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: There are only a handful of school districts in New York that have half day kindergarten programs. This legislation would assist those school districts in transitioning to full day kindergarten by expanding the current incentive aid program to be spread out over five years. This bill will help New York move closer to providing full day kindergarten to all students in the State regardless of where they live.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A.8692-B of 2015-2016.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS FOR STATE: It is estimated that the legislation will cost an estimated $25 million if all eligible school districts utilized the transition aid which includes the estimated $8 million under the current conversion formula.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

        AN ACT to amend the education law, in relation to full day kindergarten
 
          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section  1.  Subdivision  9  of  section 3602 of the education law, as
     2  amended by section 9 of part A of chapter 57 of the  laws  of  2013,  is
     3  amended to read as follows:
     4    9.  Aid  for conversion to full day kindergarten. School districts may
     5  make available full day kindergarten programs for all  children  wishing
     6  to attend such programs.
     7    a. For aid payable in the [two thousand seven--two thousand eight] two
     8  thousand  seventeen--two  thousand  eighteen school year and thereafter,
     9  school districts which provided any half-day  kindergarten  programs  or
    10  had  no kindergarten programs in the [nineteen hundred ninety-six--nine-
    11  ty-seven] two thousand sixteen--two thousand seventeen school year  [and
    12  in the base year], and which have not received an apportionment pursuant
    13  to  this  paragraph in any prior school year, shall be eligible for five
    14  year transition aid.  The aid in the first year of full day kindergarten
    15  transition is equal to the product of the district's selected foundation
    16  aid calculated pursuant to subdivision four of this  section  multiplied
    17  by  the  positive  difference  resulting  when the full day kindergarten
    18  enrollment of children attending programs in the district  in  the  base
    19  year is subtracted from such enrollment in the current year. The remain-
    20  ing transition aid shall be apportioned as follows:
    21    i.  Aid  in year two shall equal eighty percent of the aid received by
    22  the district in year one.

        A. 1625--A                          2
 
     1    ii. Aid in year three shall equal sixty  percent of the  aid  received
     2  by the district in year one.

     4  the district in year one.
     5    iv. Aid in year five shall equal twenty percent of the aid received by
     6  the district in year one.
     7    b.  Notwithstanding the provisions of paragraph a of this subdivision,
     8  school districts that have received an apportionment  pursuant  to  this
     9  subdivision  in  a prior school year shall be eligible for an apportion-
    10  ment where the department grants a waiver upon cause satisfactory to the
    11  department, including but not limited to, satisfactory demonstration  of
    12  significant  economic  hardship  that would impact the school district's
    13  ability to provide full day kindergarten for  all  children  wishing  to
    14  attend  such  programs.  No school district may be granted such a waiver
    15  more than once.
