Governor signs extension for new APPR agreements

In the final hours of the session, both houses approved legislation that would give school districts and unions until Dec. 31 to submit new Annual Professional Performance Review plans with the State Education Department. Districts around the state have been scrambling to negotiate new evaluation plans by Sept. 1, or risk losing promised state aid increases.

An estimated 450 districts still have not finished negotiations. NYSUT said the new law, signed by the governor Thursday, offers “important breathing room” for districts and local unions.
