Purpose

Beginning on July 1, 2015, schools identified as Persistently Struggling will be eligible for a portion of $75 million to support and implement turnaround efforts over a 21 month period.  The superintendent is given an initial one-year period to use the enhanced authority of a Receiver to make demonstrable improvement in student performance at the Persistently Struggling School or the Commissioner will direct that the school board appoint an Independent Receiver and submit the appointment for approval to the Commissioner. Independent Receivers are appointed for up to three school years and will enter into a contract with the NYS Education Department.

The Department shall reserve the larger of $200,000 or an amount equivalent to ten percent of a school’s Persistently Struggling Schools Grant (PSSG) to pay for potential 2016-17 school year activities and/or the contracted costs of the Independent Receiver.  NYSED will provide guidance at a later time on the application process to access schools' contingency reserve funds if no Independent Receiver is appointed.  Click link below for information on Commissioner’s Regulation 100.19.
