Notice of Rights: APPR


NOTICE OF THE RIGHT OF PARENTS AND LEGAL GUARDIANS TO RECEIVE ANNUAL PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE REVIEW FINAL QUALITY RATINGS AND COMPOSITE EFFECTIVENESS SCORES PURSUANT TO
EDUCATION LAW § 3012-c

Education Law Section 3012-c prohibits the disclosure of annual professional performance reviews of individual teachers and principals under the Freedom of Information Law (Article 6 of the Public Officers Law).

While this information is not subject to disclosure to the general public, parents and legal guardians of students in the District have rights, upon request, to review and receive the final quality rating (i.e. Highly Effective, Effective, Developing or Ineffective) and composite APPR effectiveness score (0 through 100) of individual teachers and principals to which their children have been assigned for the current school year.

Requests for this information by parents or legal guardians must be made in writing using the Form provided.  

Parents and legal guardians may receive the information regarding composite effectiveness scoring ranges for final quality ratings by mail, by telephone or in person in the school’s main office.

Upon request a parent or legal guardian shall be entitled to receive by mail, by telephone, or in person an explanation of the composite effectiveness scoring ranges for final quality ratings; and be offered opportunities to understand such scores in the context of teacher evaluation and student performance.

The District has a legal obligation to make reasonable efforts to verify that any such request is a bona fide request by a parent or guardian entitled to review and receive such data pursuant to this paragraph.  Consequently, we have created a form to be utilized when a parent or legal guardian requests information regarding their child’s current teacher(s) and building principal.

This Form to request information is available here: Request for APPR Scores.
