The SUNY Charter Schools Institute (“Institute”) announces the release of the 2017 SUNY Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to open new charter schools in New York State, including New York City. The New York Charter Schools Act of 1998 (as amended, the “Act”) requires New York’s charter authorizers to solicit applications to establish new charter schools by way of a Request for Proposals process. The statute also mandates that SUNY issue a draft RFP for public comments prior to issuing the RFP. The Institute received no public comments in response to the draft.
