Dear Colleagues,
As you are aware, in the 2015-16 school year, the Board of Regents and I placed a hold on the use of student performance measures based on the grades 3-8 ELA and math State assessments as part of teacher and principal evaluations which continues through the 2018-19 school year. This hold was intended to give us time to explore potential changes to the current evaluation system as we transition to new learning standards.
Direct feedback from educators is vital to creating an evaluation system that is responsive to educators' needs. Meaningful evaluations of teachers and principals can provide important insight to educators and school and district leaders and are a foundational element of ensuring that all students in New York State, regardless of demographics or zip code, have access to great teachers and school leaders.
This morning, your teachers and principals received the Commissioner's APPR Survey as a starting point for gathering their feedback. As leaders with a keen understanding of the profession and what works in your districts/BOCES, your feedback is equally as important. I ask you to take this critical opportunity to provide us with your candid feedback and be a part of developing an evaluation system that provides an accurate reflection of the work of your educators and, most importantly, informs their practice.  Please click on the following link to complete the survey, which should take no more than 25 minutes to complete: Commissioner's APPR Survey.

We are asking that you complete this survey and provide your feedback by March 7, 2018.  Any questions that you may have can be directed to: educatoreval@nysed.gov.
