A06711 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A6711
 
SPONSOR: Lawler
  TITLE OF BILL: An act in relation to permitting the Suffern central school district to move the date of their annual meeting and election for the 2021 year so that it does not conflict with religious observances; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof   PURPOSE: This legislation allows the Suffern Central School District to move their annual meeting and election from the third Tuesday of May, to the second Tuesday of May, this is being done so the meeting and election do not conflict with religious observations for the holiday of Shavuot   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This legislation allows the Suffern Central School District to move their annual meeting and election from the third Tuesday of May as required by Section 2002 and 2022 of the Education Law, to the second Tuesday of May to not conflict with religious observations for the holi- day of Shavuot. Such meeting shall be held in the same manner and location as specified pursuant to section 2002 and 2022 of the Education Law.   JUSTIFICATION: Under current law, school districts may request from the Commissioner of Education the ability to move their annual meeting and election from the third Tuesday of May, to the second Tuesday of May if the original date conflicted with religious observances. This year, school districts throughout New York with a significant Jewish population made requests under this provision to move their annu- al meeting and election, so as to not conflict with the observances of Shavuot, an important religious holiday. The Suffern Central School District did not request a date change by March 1 as required by law, but has since passed a resolution and transmitted that resolution to the State Education Department.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: None.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
