Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR)
The Annual Professional Performance Review, or APPR, is a state-governed process that determines the standards and the process for assessing teachers’ and leaders’ effectiveness. It aims to provide standardized, objective evaluation results, which can be used to better focus professional development for teachers and principals.
The APPR-based rating for a student’s current teacher(s) and school principal are released to that student’s parents only upon request and verification of identity. Parents and legal guardians of students may request the final quality rating and composite effectiveness score for each of the teachers and/or principal of the school building their child is attending in late September.
