APPR is the term used to describe NY State's teacher and principal evaluation system. In the 2015-16 academic year, 606 districts, BOCES and charter schools were operating under Education Law §3012-c with an approved Hardship Waiver; 122 districts and BOCES implemented APPR plans under Education Law §3012-d. Below are 2015-16 Education Law §3012-d APPR data for teachers and principals. Data has only been included for those districts and BOCES with an approved APPR plan for the 2015-16 school year under Education Law §3012-d, and includes both original and transition (as applicable) scores and ratings. Each classroom teacher and building principal must receive an overall rating based on the ratings received by the teacher or principal in the Student Performance and Teacher Observation/Principal School Visit Categories and determined using a State-prescribed matrix.
During the transition period (2015-16 through 2018-19), transition scores and HEDI ratings will be generated for teachers and principals whose HEDI scores are based, in whole or in part, on State assessments in grades 3-8 ELA or math (including where State-provided growth scores are used) or on State-provided growth scores on Regents examinations. During the 2015-16 school year, overall transition scores/ratings will be determined based upon the remaining subcomponents/categories of the APPR that are not based on the grade 3-8 ELA or math State assessments or a State provided growth score.
The figure below shows the percentage of educators in each original rating category for the two categories and the Overall rating, as well as the percentage of educators in each transition rating category for the two categories and the transition Overall rating: Original Overall rating (first row), Original Student Performance category rating (second row), and Original Teacher Observation/Principal School Visit category rating (third row), Transition Overall rating (fourth row), Transition Student Performance category rating (fifth row), and Transition Teacher Observation/Principal School Visit category rating (last row).1
