AIS Policy 2016 - 2017
At the July 2016 meeting of the Board of Regents, the Board voted to amend Commissioner’s Regulations § 100.2 regarding the methodology by which school districts identify students in grades 3-8 to receive Academic Intervention Services (AIS).
APPR Score Release
In accordance with Section 3012-c of the Education Law, regarding the Annual Professional Performance Reviews (APPR) of teachers and principals, the District is obligated to release the individual composite effectiveness scores and final ratings of teachers and principals. Parents/legal guardians may request such information for the principal of the school building and the teachers to which the student is assigned for the current school year. Only final data will be disclosed. Parents/legal guardians wishing to obtain such data must make a written request to the superintendent of schools. The identity of parents/legal guardians will be verified and the appointed school official shall only communicate the data verbally and in person. Requests may be sent to John P. Birmingham at PO Box 1189, 68 S. Main St., Moravia, NY 13118.
Local Assistance Plan
Districts in New York state who are experiencing a lack of growth in state assessment results are identified by the state. One such designation is called the Local Assistance Plan. Due to the district's flattening ELA scores, Moravia received this designation. As a result, an instructional specialist has been helping to evaluate the district's programming and instructional technique.
