Here's a novel idea: Why not actually listen to parents and educators opinions on APPR? 

Take action now at the NYSUT Member Action Center to tell the New York State Board of Regents to hold public hearings on the new APPR!

As the Regents consider implementation of the new teacher evaluation law, it's critical that they hold public hearings so that they can hear from parents and educators about what is best for our students. They must adopt research-based regulations that keep in place a system of multiple measures; limit the impact of state standardized tests; and maximize local control. And most importantly, evaluations must strengthen instruction and student learning as part of a system that attracts, develops and retains great teachers.

Take action now at the NYSUT Member Action Center to tell the New York State Board of Regents to hold public hearings on the new APPR!

The state budget process has ended, but the battle over the right approach to APPR is far from over.

Take action right now and make sure that the Regents get this right!

In solidarity,

Andrew Pallotta
NYSUT Executive Vice President

P.S.: Please help ensure that the Board of Regents holds public hearings on the new APPR!
