Report of Regents P-12 Education/Higher Education Joint Meeting Committee to The Board of Regents
Your P-12 Education Committee and Higher Education Committee held joint meetings on December 15 and 16, 2014
Items not requiring action:
Update on School Counseling Regulations. Your Committees reviewed information and recommendations made by the School Counselor Advisory Committee, in addition to information obtained from two field surveys – one to higher education programs and one to P-12, as well as the Statewide Summit, which included representatives from the New York State School Counselor Association, New York State Association for College Admission Counseling and the Association for Counselor Education and Supervision. With guidance from the Board of Regents, the Department will draft amendments to current regulations for both P-12 and higher education programs, and will report back to the Board in April 2015.
Presentation on APPR Data. Your Committees discussed the second year of statewide teacher and principal evaluation results. The preliminary statewide composite results, based on data submitted by school districts and BOCES as of the October 17 deadline, show that, similar to the first year, the vast majority of teachers and principals received a high performance rating.
