The Chapter 655 Report

A Report to the Governor and the Legislature on the Educational Status of the State's Schools

Chapter 655 of the Laws of 1987 (which amended Section 215-1 of State Education Law) requires the Board of Regents and the State Education Department to submit an annual report to the Governor and the Legislature with respect to "enrollment trends; indicators of student achievement in reading, writing, mathematics, science, and vocational courses; graduation, college attendance and employment rates;...

The report consist of the Statewide Profile of the Educational System, which reports trends in New York State student enrollment, assessment performance, graduation, and postgraduate plans, teacher qualifications, and school expenditures, and the Statistical Profiles of Public School Districts, which reports these same data by county and district in tabular format.
