What is the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR)?
The Annual Professional Performance Review is an evaluation of a teacher’s or a principal’s professional practice.

A teacher’s practice must reflect the NYS Teaching Standards.

A principal’s practice must reflect the Standards for School Leaders.

Teacher and principal evaluations incorporate student achievement and growth data.

Teachers and principals have always been evaluated. However, the format of these evaluations must meet new State Education Department regulations.
