New York City School Construction Authority
|Type||New York state public-benefit corporations|
The Authority is overseen by a three-member Board of Trustees appointed by the Mayor. Two of the current SCA trustees are Curtis A. Harris and Emily Youssouf. The third member is the Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education, Meisha Ross Porter.
The School Construction Authority was created in 1988 as a New York State public-benefit corporation by the New York State Legislature, which removed control of capital projects from the city's Board of Education in an effort to end corruption.
