  • Peekskill Among Hundreds of Districts to be Granted NYS Teacher Evaluation Waiver

    "The waiver extension allows districts and their respective associations additional time to formulate a plan relative to teacher and administrator evaluations," said Peekskill Superintendent Dr. David Fine. "This is a vital component and should be mindfully coordinated as it relates to instructional expectations and student success. Our waiver was approved a few weeks back and we continue to collaborate with our teachers and administrators in order to design an appropriate APPR plan for all stakeholders. In addition, as a region we are consistently working together with respect to best approaches and defining various directions from the state so as our focus remains on our practice, pedagogy, and students."
