State-Approved Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics for Use Under §3012-c

Math teachers working together

The New York State Education Department has posted a list of approved teacher and principal practice rubrics that meet criteria set out in the regulations governing implementation of the teacher and principal evaluation system.

Under the new law, teacher and principal evaluation systems must base 60% of each teacher’s and principal’s evaluation score on multiple measures of demonstrated effectiveness that broadly align with the New York State Teaching Standards and the Educational Leadership Policy Standards: ISLLC 2008 for principals. For the 60% sub-component, Local Education Agencies must select a practice rubric from the Department’s approved list to assess teacher and principal practice or submit for a variance to use an alternative practice rubric that will contribute to a teacher’s or principal’s evaluation rating.
