Bylaws, Chancellor's Regulations, and other Laws
Each New York City public school PA/PTA must comply with the NYC Department of Education (DOE) Regulations of the Chancellor as well as its own bylaws. If your PA/PTA is incorporated as a not-for-profit, it is also subject to the New York State Not-For-Profit Corporation Law. If your PA/PTA is a 501(c)(3) organization, it is bound by the requirements of that section of the Internal Revenue Code as well. Sections of the New York State Tax Law also apply to PA/PTAs that do business in the state.
PTAlink is independent of DOE. Its interpretation and suggested application of the Chancellor’s Regulations or DOE’s policies and procedures have not been reviewed or endorsed by DOE.
