The 2017-18 Principal Performance Review (PPR) is consistent with Education Law 3012-d 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. In 2017-2018, Principal Practice Observations (PPOs), rooted in the QR rubric, are the only type of supervisory visit.
The Principal Performance Review aims to measure principal effectiveness consistently, accurately, and fairly through a process that is transparent to principals and is based on multiple measures. The guiding principles are to support principals in making instructional decisions and improving their practice, while supporting school-level autonomy where possible.
Documents for the 2017-18 Principal Performance Review
This guide is designed to support principals and evaluators in the implementation of the Principal Performance Review; it outlines requirements for supervisory visits that yield Measures of Leadership Practice ratings, elements of Measures of Student Learning, overall scoring, and key timelines. Last updated - September, 2017.
The Principal Practice Observation Tool was created as an evidence gathering tool to be used by evaluators during Principal Practice Observations as part of the Principal Performance Review. The evidence gathered by this tool will be applied to the Quality Review rubric. The tool provides examples and questions directly connected to leadership practices embedded in each indicator of the Quality Review rubric.
