Final SED Guidelines for Submitting an Application for Merger/Consolidation

Charter schools authorized by the Board of Regents pursuing a merger or consolidation with one or more other charter schools must submit an application to the Charter School Office to do so. The application is meant to provide the Office with details supporting the rationale for merging or consolidating as well as information about the anticipated impact on the schools.

The Office has developed guidelines for submitting merger/consolidation applications and is making the draft available for review and comment through February 15, 2016. Please direct comments to charterschools@nysed.gov.
