Last week, the State Education Department (SED) released teacher and principle evaluation results from the 2012-13 school year for schools and school districts, though not for individual teachers.  The evaluations show that 94% of the state’s teachers and 92% of principals were rated either “effective” or “highly effective.”

Teachers in New York City were not included in the evaluations because the city and the teachers’ union did not reach an agreement in time on how the evaluations would be formulated. They will be included in the next batch of evaluations.
