FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
186 School Districts Have Submitted Negotiated Evaluation Agreements
State Education Commissioner John B. King, Jr. announced that as of today (July 6) 186 school districts have submitted negotiated teacher and principal evaluation agreements to his office for review. The agreements are mandated 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 evaluation agreements that have been negotiated with local teacher and principal unions.
King said he would update the number of negotiated agreements submitted periodically. A list of the districts that have submitted negotiated agreements to the on-line SED portal is attached.
