The State Education Department of New York is implementing a new Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) System, the components of which must be developed and/or negotiated, as required by law, between the school district and the teachers’ association. The information in the APPR document must be developed in accordance with Education Law 3012-c and Sections 30-2 and 100.2(o) of the Rules and Regulations of the Commissioner of Education to enhance professional effectiveness and positively impact our total school environment.

The intent of the APPR is to provide a process that facilitates improvement of instructional practices, encourages work toward personal, professional and district goals, recognizes and promotes professional growth, and focuses efforts on student-centered excellence in teaching and learning.

The superintendent of schools, assistant superintendent for curriculum, instruction and accountability, administrators' association and the teachers’ association met to develop and/or negotiate, as required by law, the new APPR system.
The approved plan can be viewed HERE.
