What is APPR?
The evaluation system began in the 2012-2013 school year for all classroom teachers and building principals.
The APPR evaluations are broken into three areas: growth on state measures, locally-selected measures and other measures.
1. Growth in state-provided numbers and student learning objectives (SLO) will comprise 20 percent of review. Student growth percentile showcases the change in performance compared to students with similar starting points. The definition of “similar” students is not just based on tests, student characteristics such as poverty, disability indicators, gender, student age will be considered.
2. Locally selected measures will comprise 20 percent of review.
