Add A Board Member
Dear Regents-Authorized Charter Schools,
For all Board of Regents (“Regents”)-authorized charter schools, prior to the appointment or election of any new member to the school’s Board of Trustees, the Board of Trustees must submit to NYSED for approval the name of each proposed member and the required background information each proposed member. The following outlines the steps required to complete this process.
Please note: It is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees for all Regents-authorized charter schools to conduct a current criminal history record check via fingerprinting which is deemed acceptable by NYSED, review such results, and report such results to NYSED through the steps outline in the guidance memo. The Board of Trustees is also required to verify that any academic and/or professional credential or qualification presented by the proposed member is genuine (See fingerprint guidance for additional information.)
Should you have any questions, please consult the guidance or contact your CSO liaison. Thank you,
Charter School Office
