Resources for the Design, Development, and Implementation of APPR Plans for 2019 and Beyond
To implement the provisions of Education Law §3012-d as amended by the Laws of 2019 relating to APPRs of classroom teachers and building principals, the Department continues to solicit applications for Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics that will be used as part of APPR.
Student Assessments for Use by School Districts and BOCES in Teacher and Principal Evaluation Under Education Law §3012-d
The New York State Education Department continues to accept applications for qualifications for State-designed supplemental assessments and/or assessments for use with SLOs to be used by LEAs in teacher and principal evaluations as part of their implementation of the APPR system.
Under Education Law 3012-d, as amended, the required subcomponent of the Student Performance category for all teachers is an SLO. For principals, the required subcomponent of the Student Performance category is either an SLO or an input model. SLOs are developed locally, consistent with the Commissioner’s goal-setting process.
LEAs are required to submit their completed APPR plans aligned with §3012-d as amended into the SED Monitoring APPR portal. The Department reviews each APPR plan to determine if it rigorously complies with the Education Law and corresponding subpart of the Rules of the Board of Regents. APPR plans under Education Law §3012-d as amended should be submitted through the SED Monitoring APPR portal. A template of the APPR form, as it appears in the SED Monitoring APPR portal, can be downloaded here.
NYSED will continue to post school districts’ APPR plans as they become approved.
