§3012-d (APPR 2015): Regulations and Implications

The 2015-2016 Enacted Budget establishes or modifies several programs that will require action by the Board of Regents and/or the State Education Department.
In particular, the enacted budget creates a new teacher and principal evaluation system to be administered by the Department in accordance with Commissioner’s Regulations
approved by the Board. The regulations to administer the new system must be issued by June 30th, 2015. Once Commissioner Regulations have been adopted, districts must submit to the Department by September 1st an updated Annual Teacher and Principal Evaluation plan in order to ensure that the plans will be reviewed and approved by the November 15th, 2015
deadline established by the Governor and Legislature in subdivision 11 of §3012-d of the Education Law to receive state aid increases for the 2015-16 school year.
