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-c APPR data for teachers and principals. Data has only been included for those districts, BOCES, and charter schools with an approved APPR plan for the 2015-16 school year under Education Law §3012-c, including both original and transition (as applicable) scores and ratings. Each classroom teacher and building principal must receive an overall rating of Highly Effective, Effective, Developing, or Ineffective (HEDI). This rating is based on a single composite effectiveness score (ranging from 0-100 points) that is calculated based on the scores received by the teacher or principal in each of the three subcomponents (State Growth or Other Comparable Measures, Locally-Selected Measures, and Other Measures of Educator Effectiveness).
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 three subcomponents and the Overall Composite score, as well as the percentage of educators in each transition rating category for the Transition Overall Composite Score12: Original Overall Composite Rating (first row), Original State Growth or Other Comparable Measures (second row), Original Locally-Selected Measures (third row), Original Other Measures of Educator Effectiveness (fourth row), and Transition Overall Composite Score (last row).

Education Law §3012-c requires that 60% of teacher and principal evaluations be based on multiple measures of teacher/principal effectiveness consistent with standards prescribed by the Commissioner in regulation. This will include the extent to which the educator demonstrates proficiency in meeting New York State's teaching or leadership standards.
