The Facility Access Process: Co-Location and Private Space

In March 2014, state law was changed to grant a subset of NYC charter schools a statutory right to facilities assistance. Education Law §2853(3)). Charter schools that are new, or adding grade levels, can go through a legally defined process (referred to as “Facilities Access Process”) that results in a charter school either receiving co-located space in a school district building; private building space provide at no cost; or funding to cover rental expenses (up to 30% of the per pupil, $4.592.10 in 2018-19 school year).
