Plattsburgh City School Could Be National Model

Plattsburgh City School could be the focus of a national model for other schools. Plattsburgh Teachers Association was part of the effort that resulted in a grant awarded to New York State United Teachers to develop the ground-breaking teacher evaluation system. The Press Republican reports that a total of nine unions from New York and Rhode Island will work with local school districts to coordinate and develop a multi-district approach to a teacher-evaluation system including peer-assistance and -review component in which veteran teachers mentor and assist new and struggling teachers.
