RFQ #15-004: Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics Providers
Full RFQ Document:

Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics Providers

Description

To implement the provisions of Education Law §3012-d relating to annual professional performance reviews of classroom teachers and building principals, the New York State Education Department (“NYSED” or “Department”), is soliciting application for Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics that will be used as part of teacher and principal evaluations. THIS SOLICITATION WILL NOT RESULT IN A CONTRACT WITH THE NEW YORK STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT. NYSED will use the objective criteria specified within to review such proposals and will generate a new list of Approved Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics Under §3012-d. This list will be available at: http://usny.nysed.gov/rttt/teachers-leaders/practicerubrics/home.html.

On April 13, 2015, the Governor signed Chapter 56 of the Laws of 2015 to add a new Education Law §3012-d to establish a new evaluation system for classroom teachers and building principals. As a result, during the June 2015 meeting of the Board of Regents, Subpart 30-2 was amended and a new Subpart 30-3 of the Rules of the Board of Regents was added as an emergency adoption in order to implement Education Law §3012-d.

The new law requires teachers and principals to be evaluated based on two categories: the Student Performance Category and the Observation/School Visit Category. The Observation/School Visit Category is made up of three subcomponents, required observations/school visits by supervisors or other trained administrators, required observations/school visits by impartial independent trained evaluator(s)1, and optional observations/school visits by trained peer educators. Section 30-3.9 of the Rules of the Board of Regents requires the Commissioner to evaluate teacher and principal practice rubrics based on the criteria outlined in this Request for Qualifications (RFQ). Such rubrics include those previously placed on the list of “Approved Teacher and Principal Practice Rubrics” pursuant to Education Law §3012-c. Rubrics approved under the previous list will be deemed as approved for use under Education Law §3012-d unless disqualified by the Department or withdrawn by the provider. For new rubrics, or updates to rubrics approved under Education Law §3012-c, submissions must be made to this RFQ in order to be approved for use under Education Law §3012-d. All applicants, both new and those with rubrics approved under the previous list, are encouraged to complete and submit Form F to provide supplemental information about how their rubrics align with Education Law §3012-d.

All approved providers who meet the criteria specified in this RFQ will be included in this list. The list will be maintained by NYSED. No funding is directly associated with this application for approval.

The approved list will be updated at least annually. There will be an opportunity for new applicants to demonstrate that their organization meets the requirements on a schedule to be determined and published by NYSED. Providers of teacher and/or principal practice rubric services may also be removed from the list subject to the conditions specified within this RFQ.


1During the September 2015 Board of Regents meeting, Subpart 30-3 of the Rules of the Board of Regents was amended to provide for a waiver from the requirement that at least one observation/school visit be conducted by one or more impartial independent trained evaluators selected and trained by the district for rural school districts or school districts with only one registered school pursuant to §100.18 of the Commissioner’s regulations that, due to the size and limited resources of the school district, is unable to obtain an independent evaluator within a reasonable proximity without an undue burden. Where a waiver has been granted, the district must instead conduct such observations/school visits utilizing one or more evaluators selected and trained by the district who are different than the evaluator(s) that conducted the observations/school visits required to be performed by the principal/supervisor or other trained administrator.
Questions

Any questions concerning this RFQ must be emailed to: RubricRFQ@nysed.gov. Answers to questions received by October 21 will be posted no later than November 4. Thereafter, questions and responses will be posted on a quarterly basis. The submitted questions and responses will be made available on the Questions and Answers page.

Note: This RFQ has been revised as of 9/22/15
Full RFQ Document:

Teacher and Principal Evaluation: Qualifications for Supplemental Assessments and Corresponding Growth Models and/or Assessments for Use with SLOs to Be Used by New York State School Districts and Boards of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in Teacher and Principal Evaluations

Description

To implement the provisions of Education Law �3012-d relating to annual professional performance reviews (APPRs) of classroom teachers and building principals, the New York State Education Department (NYSED) is soliciting applications for assessments that will be used as measures of student growth, either through supplemental assessments in conjunction with a growth model for use in the Optional Student Performance Subcomponent or through an assessment used with a student learning objective (SLO) (see definition below) that will generate a growth target for one year of expected growth for use in the Required Student Performance Subcomponent, and will subsequently contribute to teachers' and principals' APPRs.

Please note, per Education Law �3012-d and Subpart 30-3 of the Rules of the Board of Regents, "supplemental assessments" may include assessments that have been developed or designed by the State, in addition to those that have been purchased or acquired by the State from (i) another state; (ii) an institution of higher education; or (iii) a commercial or not-for-profit entity; provided that such entity must be objective and may not have a conflict of interest or appearance of a conflict of interest. Supplemental assessments may also be tests or assessments that have been previously designed or acquired by local districts.

Questions

Any questions concerning this RFQ must be emailed by September 24, 2015 to: ASSESSRFQ@nysed.gov. (Note: This email address is for questions only; do not submit application materials to this address.) Questions and responses thereto will be posted on the Questions and Answers page by October 8, 2015. No individual responses will be provided. Questions received after the deadline will be answered on the web site above as deemed appropriate by NYSED on a rolling basis.
