What is APPR?

  • The Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) is an evaluation of a teacher’s or principal’s practice.
  • A teacher’s practice must reflect the New York State teaching standards.
  • A principal’s practice must reflect the standards for school leaders.
  • Teacher and principal evaluations include student achievement and growth data.
  • The purpose of this plan is to improve student achievement through improved teacher performance.
  • The EGCSD develops its own evaluation plan within those guidelines.

 

What is the goal of APPR?

  • APPR is one of a number of statewide initiatives to improve student performance and assure that all students graduate from high school both college and career ready.
  • APPR aims to provide standardized, objective evaluation results, which can be used to better focus professional development for teachers and principals.

Is this the first time teachers and principals have been evaluated?

  • Teachers and principals have always been evaluated.
  • However, the evaluations now include student achievement data which is directly tied to student performance on state exams or other state-approved learning measures.

 

Will APPR scores be made public?

  • APPR scores are not considered public information.
  • However, state leaders have agreed that teachers’ and principals’ composite APPR ratings may be released to parents or guardians upon request and verification of identity, only for their child’s current teachers and principal. Learn more by clicking here.
