Int 1547-2019 *Brad S. Lander Proposed Int. No. 1547-AExpanding reports on demographic data in NYC public schools.IntroductionThis bill would require DOE to expand its current student demographic data reporting to the grade level to provide more granular data. The bill also requires DOE to report on a side-by-side comparison of the racial and ethnic demographics of each school or special program with the racial and ethnic demographics of the larger attendance zone and community school district. This will make the existing reporting requirement more robust and allow the Council, advocates and others to drill down deeper into the segregation that exists in our schools and the Department’s efforts to remedy that.Hearing Held by Committee  Action details Not available

Int 1550-2019 *The Public Advocate (Mr. Williams) Proposed Int. No. 1550-AEstablishment of a school diversity advisory group.IntroductionThis bill would codify the mayoral school diversity advisory group.

The advisory group would be tasked with examining factors as they relate to school diversity and would be required on an annual basis to provide a public report to the Mayor, the Speaker and The Public Advocate on increasing diversity in all schools. The annual report will also require a multi-year plan to be developed that can be adopted by DOE to address integration in schools.

Int 1552-2019 *Carlina Rivera  Proposed Int. No. 1552-BCreating district diversity working groups.IntroductionThis bill would mandate the establishment of district diversity working groups in each community school district. These working groups would work to facilitate the creation and publishing of public-input integration plans in every school district.

Issues that would be addressed include but are not limited to: admission policies, transfer trends, language access and transportation.
