Scotia-Glenville’s Annual Professional Performance Review Plan (APPR) for teachers and principals was accepted by the state Education Department in a Jan. 9 letter from Commissioner of Education John King.
The 111-page plan outlines how teachers and principals will be evaluated under the new state mandate. The plan will provide an overall evaluation score to each teacher and principal:
▪ 20 percent of the final score will be based on student achievement;
▪ 20 percent of the final score will be based on growth in student scores from year to year.
Both of these measures will be determined using state tests like the annual ELA and Math or Regents exams; locally-developed measures; or BOCES or other third-party tests. The percentages above will change once the state develops to-be-expected “growth” standards for student test scores.
▪ The final 60 percent will be based on individual classroom observations.
Based on the cumulative scores, teachers and principals will be ranked as Highly Effective, Effective, Developing or Ineffective.
The plan also includes an appeals process for teachers and principals ranked as developing or ineffective to a committee of administrators and teachers as well as an improvement plan for the individual to follow in order to boost their ranking.
