By Council Members Treyger, Levin and Chin

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the department of education to report on District 75 student and parent building access

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

Section 1. Section 21-951 of chapter 2 of Title 21-A of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended to read as follows:

§ 21-951. Annual reporting on co-located schools.

a. For the purposes of this section, the following terms have the following meanings:

Co-located school. The [the] term “co-located school” [shall mean] means any public school serving students in the elementary, middle or high school grades, or any combination thereof, including any charter school or District 75 school, which shares space with another public school in a building within the city school district of the city of New York.

District 75 school. The term District 75 school means a school designated as such by the department because the school provides highly specialized instructional support for students with significant challenges, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders, significant cognitive delays, emotional disturbances, sensory impairments and multiple disabilities.

b. Not later than the thirtieth day of August of the year 2015 and annually thereafter, the department shall submit to the council and post on the department's website a report regarding information on all co-located schools for the prior school year. Such report shall include, but not be limited to[,]: (i) a comparison of demographic information including, but not limited to race, ethnicity, English language learner status, special education status, and the percentage of students eligible for the free and reduced price lunch program; [and] (ii) information regarding student academic performance, including but not limited to, student scores received on state examinations; and (iii) where a District 75 school is a co-located school, the policy regarding building entrances, in particular the use of the general education entrances for District 75 students and parents, including a summary of current practices and recommendations for best practices.

c. No information that is otherwise required to be reported pursuant to this section shall be reported in a manner that would violate any applicable provision of federal, state or local law relating to the privacy of student information or that would interfere with law enforcement investigations or otherwise conflict with the interests of law enforcement. If a category contains between 0 and 9 students, or allows another category to be narrowed to between 0 and 9 students, the number shall be replaced with a symbol.

§ 2. This local law takes effect immediately.
