News Description: 

All schools are required to file financial statements 120-days after their fiscal year end. Additionally, schools should review the policy guideline on Financial Viability. Questions regarding financial statements will be sent by email only to BPSSSchoolreviews@nysed.gov.

The annual OEDS reports were sent electronically to the school contact on file with BPSS. Submissions of OEDS are due no later than April 1, 2022. BPSS will only accept OEDS reports through the email survey link sent to the designated school contact. Questions regarding OEDS reports should be sent by email only to OEDS@NYSED.gov.

Schools currently offering distance education using a Temporary Distance Education approval (TDE) must apply for programmatic approval. Please review the policy guideline on Distance Education Applications for information. All TDE approvals will sunset on December 31, 2022.  Questions regarding distance education applications will be sent by email only to BPSScurriculum@nysed.gov.

Applicants for personnel licenses (agents, directors, teachers) should be mindful the application fee is for an evaluation of the application, and not the license itself. BPSS will not waive or refund application fees if an applicant is denied a license. This includes teacher applicants that apply for the wrong license type. Applicants for personnel licenses should consult the BPSS website to ensure their background and education meets the qualifications of the license they are seeking.
