Clarification of Replicator Eligibility

The Institute has noted some confusion regarding the Applicant Eligibility section of the 2019 RFP Request for Replication Proposals. The Institute intended the language in the RFP to allow proposals from education corporations opening all unopened charters consistent with the opening dates indicated either at the time of proposal approval, or after the standard allowed one or two authorizer approved planning years under Section 3.1 of SUNY Charter Agreement. The Institute has clarified the Applicant Eligibility section of the 2019 RFP’s Request for Replication Proposals as set forth below. In fairness to all applicants, the Institute will permit any otherwise eligible applicant to submit an Intent to Apply Form and Proposal any time prior to the January 9, 2019 Proposal deadline.
