Minimum Requirements for Schools in New York State. 1976 Edition.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This booklet summarizes minimum standards and requirements of public elementary and secondary schools in the state of New York, as of April 1976. The requirements presented here are digests of state law, rules of the Board of Regents, and regulations of the state Commissioner of Education; usually these digests do not exactly follow the official working of the various requirements. Requirements are organized topically within major sections dealing with instructional programs and noninstructional programs, respectively. Requirements relevant to instructional programs include those dealing with attendance, length of school day, teacher load in high school, subjects of instruction, examinations, diplomas, handicapped children, libraries, continuing education, licensed private schools and registered business schools, disaster planning and civil preparedness in schools, fire drills, suspension of a minor, language of instruction, and released time for religious education. Noninstructional program requirements are presented for educational facilities, transportation, school district organization, health services, and registration of secondary schools. (JG)
