The New York State Education Department supports high-quality educational opportunities for all students in New York State. Toward the aim of creating a diverse portfolio of innovative charter schools that produce strong outcomes for all children through a rigorous new school process, the Department has updated the Request for Proposals (RFP) to Establish New York State Charter Schools Authorized by the Board of Regents for the 2019 application cycle for proposed charter schools seeking to commence instruction in the 2020-2021 school year.  

For Round 1: Applications will be accepted only if: 
• The proposed district of location is New York City; 
• The applicant group meets all other application eligibility criteria set forth in this RFP;
• The applicant group is replicating an existing Board of Regents authorized education corporation and which does not have unopened charter schools that have requested to delay or are delaying the opening of the unopened schools at the time of submission.
