FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
214 School Districts Have Submitted Negotiated Evaluation Agreements
State Education Commissioner John B. King, Jr. announced that as of today (July 20 ) 214 school districts have certified they submitted negotiated teacher and principal evaluation agreements to his office for review. The agreements are required under the revised teacher and principal evaluation law passed earlier this year (Chapter 21 of the Laws of 2012).
The State Education Department (SED) created and manages an on-line portal for school districts to submit and certify evaluation agreements that have been negotiated with local teacher and principal unions.
King said he would periodically update the number of negotiated agreements certified by school districts. See the list of the districts that have submitted negotiated agreements (35KB) to the on-line SED portal.
