STATEMENT FROM REGENTS CHANCELLOR MERRYL H. TISCH
GOVERNOR CUOMO’S PROPOSAL
EVALUATING TEACHER AND PRINCIPAL EFFECTIVENESS
"Based on the comments received from numerous stakeholders including our conversations with Governor Cuomo in recent weeks, the State Education Department will issue shortly amended regulations that will include all of the recommendations made by the Governor.
I believe Governor Cuomo's recommendations to improve these regulations will lead to an even stronger teacher and principal evaluation system for New York and I will support them when my colleagues and I on the Board of Regents convene on Monday."
