Overview

Principal Performance Review

The 2014-15 Principal Performance Review (PPR) is consistent with Education Law 3012-c and agreements between the NYC Department of Education (DOE) and the Council for School Supervisors and Administrators; the framework of the PPR is being used across the State. The Principal Performance Review has been designed to support a common vision: An effective principal in every school for every student.

The principal evaluation system for the NYC DOE requires that a minimum of two supervisory visits inform an overall rating for Measures of Leadership Practice, accounting for 60% of a principal’s final rating. There will continue to be two types of supervisory visits rooted in the Quality Review rubric: the Quality Review (QR) and the Principal Practice Observation (PPO).

The Principal Performance Review aims to measure educator effectiveness consistently, accurately, and fairly through a process that is transparent to educators and is based on multiple measures. The guiding principles are to support educators in making instructional decisions and improving their practice, while supporting school-level autonomy where possible.
