Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR 3012-d)

What is the APPR?

APPR stands for Annual Professional Performance Review (3012-d). It is the process by which teachers and principals are now evaluated in New York State.

The purpose of APPR is to empower educators to improve the quality of instruction in schools and, in turn, to improve students' performance and readiness for colleges and careers. APPR plans must meet strict state guidelines and are negotiated with local employee labor unions.

Under state guidelines, APPR takes into account classroom observations, student test scores, and a variety of achievement and assessment measures - many of which are decided at the local level. Teachers and principals across New York ultimately receive a number grade every year, which equates to an effectiveness rating.

In accordance with Education Law 3012-c, parents or legal guardians of a child in the Schalmont Central School District have the right to obtain information related to the Annual Professional Performance Review of their child's current teacher(s) or principal.

Appointments to receive teacher or principal scores must be requested in writing using the form below.
