TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend chapter 118 of the laws of 1969, relating to a separate union free school district in the town of Greenburgh in the county of Westchester, in relation to clarifying the authority of the Greenburgh North Castle Union Free School District to lease certain properties located outside of its boundaries

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL: This legislation will authorize the Greenburgh North Castle Union Free School District to continue leasing property outside of district boundaries for the purpose of providing instruction to students.

Section 2: Ratifies previous Board action regarding lease arrangements at the site.

Section 3: Establishes the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: The Greenburgh North Castle Union Free School District is a special act district that currently operates programs to serve special needs students.
