Annual Compliance with Article 129-A at The Juilliard School

Within The Juilliard School, this yearly compliance certification is submitted by the Department of Facilities, Maintenance, and Engineering on behalf of their institution. The Juilliard School President is the signator on the certification form, and has the duty to submit certification to NYSED for the institution on or before July 1st of each year.

The certification form requires that campus Presidents certify to the New York State Education Department Office of Higher Education that they are in compliance with Article 129-A of the New York State Education Law and its various provisions.
NOTE that NYSED has not yet released the 2014 Certification Form.

2014 Decennial Compliance with Article 129-A - September 2, 2014

In addition to the certification form that must be submitted on or before July 1st of each year to NYSED, the law also requires that every ten years, institutions submit actual copies of their policies to demonstrate their compliance, rather than just signing a form attesting that the institution is in compliance. This ten year requirement occurred last in 2004.

Therefore, in 2014, all New York State institutions, including The Juilliard School must once again submit their policies related to the various provisions of Article 129-A, along with the signed certification of compliance form, on or before September 2 to NYSED.
