Guide to Merging Education Corporations

Amendments to the New York Charter Schools Act of 1998 (as amended, the “Act”) in 2010, permit charter school education corporations to operate more than one charter school.  Two or more existing education corporations may elect to merge into one education corporation with the authority to operate multiple charter schools pursuant to New York Education Law §§ 2852(7) and 2853(1)(b-1), and Article 9 of the New York Not-For Profit Corporation Law.  Merger can benefit the schools involved by allowing common governance, common oversight, common financial accounting, shared educational programming and resources, and improved student access to the schools under the education corporation.  The following guidance discusses the documents and procedures necessary to prepare for merger of education corporations, the documents required and guidance as to operations after merger has become effective.
