News from NYSED
  • The Office of Student Support Services of the New York State Education Department (NYSED) is seeking proposals to operate a Statewide Center for School Health (the Center). The Center will work in collaboration with the New York State Education Department as a resource center to provide professional development and ongoing technical assistance to all school health personnel employed in all schools throughout the State (inclusive of both health and mental health personnel), and all school personnel that are involved in coordinating and/or delivering school health education.

  • In order 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) 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) that will generate a growth target for one year if expected growth for use in the Required Student Performance Subcomponent and will subsequently contribute to teachers’ and principals’ annual performance appraisals. Such assessments include those previously placed on the “List of Approved Student Assessments for Use by School Districts and BOCES in Teacher and Principal Evaluations.” Assessments approved under the previous list are only eligible for use under Education Law §3012-c. Assessment providers must apply to this RFQ in order to be approved for use under Education Law §3012-d. THIS SOLICITATION WILL NOT RESULT IN A CONTRACT WITH THE NEW YORK STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT.

  • This piece was originally posted on the Huffington Post. The story of rebirth in New Orleans’ schools since Hurricane Katrina is one of nationally historic significance – but as is true of the city’s recovery, it is a profoundly unfinished story.

  • The U.S. Department of Education announced today a $4 million grant competition for planning and launching high-quality public charter schools through the non-state educational agency grant program. In addition, operators of existing high-quality public charter schools can receive funding to share information with other schools about best practices.
