Strengthening Teacher and Leader Effectiveness Grant Program

Watch how one school district is successfully developing and supporting effective teachers and school leaders through a New York State Department of Education grant. The "Strengthening Teacher and Leader Effectiveness" program currently supports more than 100 school districts across the State through individual and BOCES-led consortia grants. Funding from this grant supports work being done in districts with approved Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) plans and at least 25% of students from low-income households. A third round of the grant will be announced early in 2014. It is estimated that in total over $70 million will be provided to support grantees utilizing a comprehensive approach to recruitment, development, support, retention and equitable distribution of effective teachers and school leaders as part of their implementation of their APPR plan.
