Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics

Please contact the provider directly if you are seeking information on costs, legal restrictions, and/or training and implementation details for a teacher or principal practice rubric on the approved list found below.

If you are seeking an application or information on the rubric variance process, please click the following link: Rubric Variance.


The New York State Education Department, as part of its implementation of the provisions of Education Law §3012-c regarding annual professional performance reviews (APPR) of classroom teachers and building principals, is pleased to post its lists of Approved Teacher Practice Rubrics and Approved Principal Practice Rubrics that meet the criteria established in our Request for Qualification (RFQ). This list will be updated periodically as additional applications are submitted and approved.

In choosing rubrics for use in the APPR, LEAs should note that the governing body of each school district and BOCES is responsible for ensuring that evaluators have appropriate training—including training on the application and use of the rubrics—before conducting an evaluation under 3012-c and Commissioner's regulations.  The governing body is also responsible for certifying a lead evaluator as qualified before that lead evaluator conducts or completes a teacher’s or principal’s evaluation.  (The requirements for evaluator training and certification are in §30-2.9 of the Commissioner’s regulations; see page 38 at this link.)

Some providers listed here charge a fee to license the rubric or to purchase the associated implementation support services, while others do not.  Further, all providers offer a range of optional services.  LEAs are encouraged to contact providers directly to discuss their specific needs in line with their APPR plan and their plans for training evaluators and certifying lead evaluators.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) will be made available shortly, and we will continue to add links to the rubrics themselves in cases where permission has been granted. You may also wish to review Guidance on New York State’s Annual Professional Performance Review Law and Regulations.

Questions or comments regarding this list can be directed to rubricrfq@mail.nysed.gov.

Questions or comments regarding the district variance process can be directed to: rubricvar@mail.nysed.gov.
