This year is different,” Mineola School Superintendent Dr. Michael Nagler said. “It’s different that what we’ve done in the past.”
This school year students are are not the only ones who are being assessed on their performance; school principals are also being evaluated with an in-depth look at their interactions with teachers at increasing student achievement and how to quantify that effect.
“How can a principal demonstrate their influence on what’s going on?” Dr. Nagler summed up at the December 1 meeting of the board of education.
The 2011-12 school year is the first year principals will have an annual professional performance review (APPR), the same review which currently evaluates performances of teachers and administrators.
