Pollicino V. NYCDOE - Appeal to the Commissioner(12/31/07) to revoke the section of Chancellor's Regulation A-655 (SLT's) (12/7/07) that weakens the responsibilities of SLT's.
The revised A-655 states that the principal makes the final determination concerning the CEP and budget. The NYCDOE in its brief stated that this is the case with the CEP only if consensus is not reached. However, the language in A-655 does not state this. In addition, A-655 states that the principal develops the budget and consults with the SLT. This is a departure from the previous A-655 (2004) which states the SLT consults with the principal in developing a school based budget.
On April 25, the NYSED approved the following as intervenors supporting Pollicino V. NYCDOE.
