- Non-material changes, changes that
appear to require permission of the SUNY
Trustees but the change is
either small or just outside of a permissible charter range, e.g., change
in the number of trustees outlined in school by-laws and such change
is not contemplated by the by-laws; or projected enrollment change for
one year and the number of students is not far outside acceptable
range. Generally, in these types of situations, only Institute
permission is needed. However, the Institute does inform SED and
many of these changes are the subject of SED review and agreement.
If SED is not in agreement, these requests may require a material change; and;
- Material changes require specific permission
of the Board of Trustees of the State University of New York, e.g. enrollment
for the life of charter; grade changes (except not teaching
a grade for one year); or management company changes (moving to a different
company, starting a new relationship with a management company, or ending
a relationship with a management company).
Note: In the cases of changes that a school
may do on its own, written notice should be provided to the Institute
for its records and to verify in fact that the change does in fact qualify
in this category.
