Learning Summit on Teacher and Principal Evaluation
The New York State Board of Regents, in conjunction with the New York State Education Department, will hold a Learning Summit on Teacher and Principal Evaluation this Thursday May 7, 2015, for the purposes of gaining valuable feedback from you and your organization regarding the Commissioner’s regulations that must be adopted in response to changes to the new teacher and principal evaluation system for New York State educators.
NYSSBA has been invited to participate. We were given 22 tickets to distribute statewide. Our delegation is composed of school board members from every area, the Big 5, BOCES, and the Caucus of Black School Board Members. NYSSBA Executive Director Tim Kremer, Deputy Executive Director and General Counsel Jay Worona and Director of Governmental Relations Julie Marlette will make a presentation on behalf of NYSSBA members that will address policy, regulatory and legislative recommendations for rebuilding the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) system correctly.
The summit will be live-streamed for your convenience. Instructions for accessing the live-stream signal will be posted on the NYSSBA website.

At first glance, it seems clear that many of the state aid distribution principles advocated for by NYSSBA were included in this year’s school aid package.
