At tonight's board of education meeting in Briarcliff Manor, Director of Instructional Services Carol Ross will be speaking with the board about the state-mandated Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR).
Her presentation, available on the district's website, identifies 11 "tasks" the district must undertake as part of the evaluation process.
Last school year, district administrators and teachers that involves a rubric evaluation for all principals and teachers. Additionally, scores for staffers include student achievement on standardized tests and measures of growth (based in part on ELA/math state tests and Regents exams).
According to Ross' presentation, the district must receive state approval of its evaluation plan and "Since the Briarcliff plan is for the 2012-13 scool year, negotiations will continue to develop the next plan."
Finally, she notes, "The APPR experience of 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 will affect negotiations for future plans and some changes may occur, including the possibility of multi-year plans."
Also on tonight's work session/action meeting agenda:
- Resignation of four teaching assistants
- Tax certiorari approval
