Oversight Plan for Board of Regents-Authorized Charter Schools

To permit the Regents to fulfill this oversight function under the New York State Charter Schools Act and ensure that each charter school is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and the terms and conditions of the charter, each charter school agrees to abide by and implement the oversight plan, the components of which are presented below. Amendments and revisions may be made to the plan by the Department in consultation with the charter school.
