Regents Board chancellor suggests high-performing schools have power over evaluations

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The chancellor of New York’s Regents Board is suggesting that high-performing schools have some power over new teacher evaluation requirements.

That plan is not sitting well with the state’s largest teachers union, NYSUT, which says that plan only benefits some districts while putting unfair pressure on others.

Chancellor Meryl Tisch has suggested districts with high graduation rates should have more power over evaluating their teachers.

NYSUT and Governor Andrew Cuomo remain sharply divided on the evaluation changes — which now rely more on common core tests.
