Gov. Kathy Hochul Friday signed a bill suspending, for an additional year, the Annual Professional Performance Review process.

Advanced through grassroots advocacy from NYSUT members and lobbying by union legislative staff, the bill recently passed both the state Senate and the Assembly.

“As we come to the end of another school year that has been anything but normal, we welcome the governor’s decision to suspend the APPR process for another year,” said NYSUT President Andy Pallotta. “We will continue working with the legislature and the governor to address the APPR process.”

Earlier this month, NYSUT members ran a successful advocacy campaign through the Member Action Center to encourage members of the Assembly to act on this crucial legislation.
