The Regents Advisory Task Force on Teacher and Principal Effectiveness today submitted to the Board of Regents a comprehensive report containing recommendations for implementing a teacher and principal performance evaluation system in New York State.
The Board of Regents reviewed and discussed these recommendations at their meeting today, and are expected to adopt implementing regulations later this Spring.
The composite score will be determined as follows:
· 20% -- student growth on state assessments or a comparable measure of student growth (increased to 25% upon implementation of a value-added growth model);
· 20% -- locally-selected measures of student achievement that are determined to be rigorous and comparable across classrooms (decreased to 15% upon implementation of a value-added growth model; and
· 60% -- other measures of teacher/principal effectiveness
2011-2012 School Year ? New performance evaluation system takes effect for classroom teachers of common branch subjects, ELA or math in grades 4 - 8 along with their respective building principals
2012-2013 School Year ? New performance evaluation system goes into effect for all teachers and building principals
At the conclusion of the meeting the Board of Regents directed Department staff to proceed with drafting regulations to reflect the day?s conversation. Those draft regulations would be brought before the Board at their May meeting.
