The New York State Board of Regents has committed to the transformation of the preparation, support, and evaluation of all teachers and school leaders in New York State.  Chapter 21 of the Laws of 2012 amended Education Law §3012-c to fundamentally change the way teachers and principals are evaluated. As stated by the NYS Education Department, “The purpose of the evaluation system is to ensure that there is an effective teacher in every classroom and an effective leader in every school. The evaluation system will also foster a culture of continuous professional growth for educators to grow and improve their instructional practices1.”



School districts are required to submit their plan electronically for review by the New York State Education Department.  In all, a total of 13 tasks/sections must be completed.

Following the completion of negotiations on the district's plan, it was submitted electronically to The State Education Department and officially approved on January 4, 2013.
