About Teacher and Principal Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR)

On February 16, 2012, Governor Cuomo proposed budget legislation that would amend Education Law section 3012-c to resolve the issues in New York State United Teachers, et. al v. Board of Regents, the litigation challenging these regulations. The Department will be proposing amendments to Subpart 30-2 of the Regulations of the Commissioner to conform to the statutory changes and reflect the agreement to settle the litigation. We anticipate that amendments will be made that will substantially impact the conduct of Annual Professional Performance Reviews for the 2012-13 school year.
