Requests For Proposals

The SUNY Charter Schools Institute today announced the release of the 2023 RFP Round 2 Supplement. The 2023 RFP states that “SUNY, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to modify the 2023 RFP schedule; hold additional round(s) in the year and/or incorporate any new statutory or regulatory requirements into this RFP.” As a result of additional charters becoming available to grant in the five boroughs of New York City, the Institute will hold an additional application round for groups proposing to open charter schools in New York City. Applicant groups whose applications were approved by the SUNY Board of Trustees Charter Schools Committee pursuant to the 2019 RFP that have not yet received charters are eligible to apply under the 2023 RFP Round 2 Supplement. No other applicant groups shall be eligible to apply in this round.
