Governor Cuomo has left it to the State Education Department and the NY State Board of Regents to determine the specifics of the new teacher evaluation system. The Regents are currently taking public comment on this topic. The Parent Advocacy Committee has composed a letter outlining our concerns and our hopes for a better approach to testing our children and evaluating our teachers. We hope you will consider adding your name to it or sending your own letter. There are just a few days before the Regents meet on Monday May 18th. Let’s take a few moments to let them know how we feel.
You may sign our letter by going to this link on google docs and adding your name to the bottom of the list. We will collect signatures through the weekend and will forward the document on Monday May 18, 9am.
If you’d like to send your own letter, mail it to Eval2015@nysed.gov.
