I am a supervisor of a social studies department and teach two classes.  I would like to know if your district is requiring supervisors/chairpersons who teach to be subject to APPR guidlines (SLOs, artifacts, observations in classrooms, etc.)

Thank you.

Thanks so much for sharing the OCM Boces site; it's a fantastic resource and I feel easier to navigate than Engage NY.

Attached you will find a document that may help you and your district to keep track of SLOs and the number of SLOs K-12.

The negotiation of the APPR is a challenge. Plowing through the endless pages of description and regulation is daunting. Those in grades 4-8 have NYS deciding how many of the 20 points will be gained based on the ELA and math tests. It will be difficult to create a metric for everyone else that is comparable to those under the state rating system. Furthermore, what safeguards are you putting in place with regard to the 60 point evaluation portion that will make sure teachers are not unjustly targeted resulting in low point recovery? How are you all addressing this?

We recently did some PD with our teachers that are required to have SLO's.  Essentially, we shared what we were recently taught through BOCES.  TOgether, with the teachers, we began to create SLO's departmentally.  IT was a learning experience for everyone involved.  More importantly, it was conversation that needed to get started.

We are of course beginning the process over here for SLOs. We have done a lot of work toward our new APPR. Im wondering how other districts are faring?

I suggested to the LA Directors who would like to start a focus group to discuss the creation of SLOs for ELA that we have a regional meeting at one of the BOCES. I sent Debbie Kennedy a copy so that she could ask her colleagues on how BOCES could be supportive. Thanks to Mike Keany, I found your group.
