The Common Core Toolkit for Parents and Families is a collection of materials and resources that will help parents and families understand the New York State Common Core implementation.  We encourage schools and districts to leverage these resources when reaching out to parents on this important work.

See http://engageny.org/parent-and-family-resources

In particular, the link below includes everything needed to plan a training or series of trainings to help parents understand college readiness and the Common Core standards.  The links on this page include planning tools, documents, and agendas to help prepare for and execute a successful Common Core parent night.

Questions about APPR for School Counselors

NYSSCA and NYSUT have put together a Q&A document to assist school counselors whose districts are negotiating contractual changes to annual professional performance reviews (APPR).  Although the current legislation on APPR for teachers DOES NOT APPLY TO SCHOOL COUNSELORS, it appears some districts are asking school counselors to propose a new APPR rubric and/or SLOs.
