Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR)

All Guilderland Central School District parents or legal guardians have the right to request Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) quality ratings and composite effectiveness scores for their child’s current year’s teacher(s) and principal(s).

  • New York State Education Law requires each classroom teacher and school principal to receive an annual professional performance review (APPR) that results in a composite effectiveness score and rating. All parents/guardians have the right to obtain the APPR quality ratings and composite effectiveness scores for their child’s current teacher(s) and principal(s) once they are available. To initiate this request, please contact the building principal for the school your child attends.
  • To obtain teacher scores, parents or legal guardians must complete a school-specific teacher score request form to schedule an appointment with the principal’s office in their child’s school to view the releasable information. Upon arrival, the parent or legal guardian must present valid identification to confirm his or her relationship to the student. Either a school building principal or instructional administrator will share the releasable information and provide a handout explaining the information in accordance with education law.
  • To obtain principal scores, parents or legal guardians must complete the principal score request form to schedule an appointment with the superintendent’s office to view the releasable information. Upon arrival, the parent or legal guardian must present valid identification to confirm his or her relationship to the student. Either the superintendent of schools or an assistant superintendent will share the releasable information and provide a handout explaining the information in accordance with education law. Please note: The principal score request form is not school-specific; you may request ratings information for all of your child(ren)’s principals using the same request form.

Teachers and principals will be notified when parents request their scores but will not be told who made the request. An appeal of the APPR by the teacher or principal will delay providing this information until such time as the appeal is concluded.

All school districts in New York are required to adopt and submit to the state an APPR plan for teachers and school principals or risk losing a portion of their state aid. To access GCSD’s most recently approved APPR plan, please contact the district’s curriculum office 456-6200, ext. 3119.
