NYS Education Department unveils new standards for private schools

The New York State Department of Education unveiled new educational guidelines for private schools at their Monday, March 14 meeting.

The new standards provide more routes through which non-public schools can demonstrate their educational programs are “substantially equivalent” to that of public schools, as required by NYS law, according to Albany Times-Union. The draft regulations also ease the oversight burden on public schools.


Accredited institutions and those that administer state tests are exempt from compliance checks. Other non-public schools will be subject to review by the local public school district. A two-year review process led by public school districts will kick off in September 2023.
