  1. In the Governor’s Executive order D 2020 007 on April 1st, suspended the requirements of the state law on the frequency and duration of employment performance evaluations for school districts, charters schools and BOCES licensed personnel, including teachers, special service providers, principals and administrators to enable schools and districts to focus on providing alternative learning opportunities for their students.

    LEAs may choose to complete the educator evaluation process for all or some educators.

    The Executive Order suspends the state statutory requirement that LEAs evaluate licensed personnel for the 2019-2020 school year. Whether an LEA may finalize evaluations for some, all, or none of its teachers, administrators, and special services providers in the 2019-2020 school year—for purposes of improving instruction or making personnel decisions—is up to the LEA. An LEA’s options may vary depending on the terms of its evaluation system and any collective bargaining agreement. If uncertain of any question regarding educator effectiveness at the local level, an LEA should consult with its legal counsel.
