Monitoring the New Evaluation Procedures

Public school classroom teachers should have received their 2012-13 composite scores and ratings by the end of the day on Sept. 3. Teacher Improvement Plans (TIPs), where required, must be provided within 10 school days after classes begin.

NYSUT is aggressively monitoring the delivery of scores, development of TIPs and number of appeals, and "will provide full protection and advocacy in support of our members' rights," NYSUT President Dick Iannuzzi said.

NYSUT continues to challenge the timing, quality and nature of the testing and scoring as well as the rocky implementation of Common Core State Standards. It's important for local leaders to consult with their labor relations specialists and regional offices about ongoing developments. Resources are available on the Web site to help members understand what's next in the teacher evaluation process and how growth scores are determined
