NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A10266
 
SPONSOR: Rules (Lunsford)
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to certain special services aid for large city school districts and other school districts which were not components of a board of cooperative educational services in the base year   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 amends section 3602(10)(b) of the education law to expand the aid for career education for city school districts and other school districts which are not components of a board of cooperative educational services to include ninth grade. It also increases the allocation amount per pupil from $3,900 to $4,300. Section 2 is the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: Career and Technical Education ("CTE") funding through Special Services Aid is allocated to certain large city school districts and other school districts which are not part of a BOCES system. This funding is used to provide students with a strong foundation of technical knowledge and skills to complement their academic studies and prepare them for both college and future careers. Increasing access to CTE not only decreases overall dropout rates, but it can also assist in closing New York State's middle skills job gap. Today's technical jobs often require special skill sets and can offer above average salaries and benefits; however, a shortage of skilled applicants is becoming a burden to New York State business owners. Currently, CTE funding is capped at $3,900 per pupil from grades ten to twelve who attend career education programs offered by the school districts. By increasing this amount to $4,300 and expanding to ninth grade, this bill will enhance opportunities for our scholars and lead to improved graduation rates and employment opportunities post-graduation   LEGISLATIVE IIISTORY: New bill.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined; this bill will not affect funding for the 2021-22 school year.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to school years commencing on and after July 1, 2022.

        Introduced by COMMITTEE ON RULES -- (at request of M. of A. Lunsford) --
          read once and referred to the Committee on Education
 
        AN  ACT  to  amend  the  education  law,  in relation to certain special
          services  aid  for  large  city  school  districts  and  other  school
          districts   which were not components of a board of cooperative educa-
          tional services in the base year

          The People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and  Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Paragraph b of subdivision 10 of section 3602 of the educa-
     2  tion  law,  as amended by section 16 of part B of chapter 57 of the laws
     3  of 2007, is amended to read as follows:
     4    b. Aid for career education. There shall be apportioned to  such  city
     5  school districts and other school districts which were not components of
     6  a  board of cooperative educational services in the base year for pupils
     7  in grades [ten] nine through twelve in attendance  in  career  education
     8  programs  as  such programs are defined by the commissioner, subject for
     9  the purposes of this paragraph to the approval of the  director  of  the
    10  budget,  an amount for each such pupil to be computed by multiplying the
    11  career education aid ratio by [three] four thousand [nine] three hundred
    12  dollars. Such aid will be payable for weighted pupils  attending  career
    13  education  programs  operated  by  the  school district and for weighted
    14  pupils for whom such school district contracts with  boards  of  cooper-
    15  ative  educational services to attend career education programs operated
    16  by a board of cooperative educational services. Weighted pupils for  the
    17  purposes  of  this  paragraph  shall  mean  the sum of the attendance of
    18  students in  grades  [ten]  nine  through  twelve  in  career  education
    19  sequences  in  trade,  industrial,  technical,  agricultural  or  health
    20  programs plus the  product  of  sixteen  hundredths  multiplied  by  the
    21  attendance  of  students  in  grades [ten] nine through twelve in career
    22  education sequences in business and marketing as defined by the  commis-
    23  sioner  in regulations. The career education aid ratio shall be computed
    24  by subtracting from one the product obtained by  multiplying  fifty-nine
    25  percent  by the combined wealth ratio. This aid ratio shall be expressed

     1  as a decimal carried to three places without rounding, but not less than
     2  thirty-six percent.
     3    Any school district that receives aid pursuant to this paragraph shall
     4  be  required  to use such amount to support career education programs in
     5  the current year.
     6    A board of education which spends less than its local funds as defined
     7  by regulations of the commissioner for career education in the base year
     8  during the current year shall have its apportionment under this subdivi-
     9  sion reduced in an amount equal to such deficiency in the current  or  a
    10  succeeding school year, provided however that the commissioner may waive
    11  such reduction upon determination that overall expenditures per pupil in
    12  support  of career education programs were continued at a level equal to
    13  or greater than the level of such overall expenditures per pupil in  the
    14  preceding school year.
    15    §  2. This act shall take effect immediately and shall apply to school
    16  years commencing on and after July 1, 2022.
