SUNY Releases Draft 2018 RFP for Public Comment

The SUNY Charter Schools Institute, on behalf of the SUNY Board of Trustees, is pleased to announce the release of the Draft 2018 SUNY Request for Proposals (“RFP”) to establish new charter schools, and for existing education corporations to operate additional schools. The Charter Schools Act of 1998 (as amended) requires SUNY to accept charter school applications by way of a Request for Proposals process. The statute mandates that SUNY issue a draft RFP for public comment prior to issuing the final RFP.

The Institute welcomes your comments and encourages you to share the draft document broadly and/or to post the electronic version on your website. The Institute will accept comments via email to: [email protected] and via mail to: SUNY Charter Schools Institute, SUNY Plaza, 353 Broadway, Albany, NY 12246, through 5 P.M. on December 11, 2017.

The Institute will review any written comments received by the deadline and consider the comments in finalizing the RFP. The Institute anticipates releasing the final 2018 RFP and a summary of the comments and the Institute’s corresponding responses on December 31, 2017.
