  • Cuomo calls for $1.1 billion school aid increase contingent on education reforms, with no mention of the GEA | Mohonasen Central School District, Rotterdam, NY
    is set to expire after this current year as well as a new circuit breaker tax reduction program This would reduce property taxes for some homeowners and renters based on income and the amount of their tax bills If the Legislature does not enact the reforms Cuomo outlined he said that the increase in school aid next year would drop to 377 million The series of education reforms Cuomo called for included changes to how districts evaluate teachers and principals Under the existing process evaluation scores consist of essentially three components classroom observations growth on state test scores and locally selected learning targets and additional measures of student achievement Scores on these components result in a rating of highly effective effective developing or ineffective In his speech the Governor outlined a plan that would change the evaluation process so that 50 percent of scores are based on state exams and the other 50 percent on observations While many other details of this plan are still unknown Gov Cuomo did say that the elements of the scoring system for teacher observations would be set in state law rather than locally negotiated as they are now Cuomo also said that teachers would have to be rated highly effective or effective in both areas to receive an overall rating of highly effective or effective and that this process would eliminate much of the local testing taking place in school districts under the existing evaluation process Under Cuomo s plan a teacher who has two consecutive ineffective ratings would be removed from their teaching position The budget proposal includes funding to continue rewarding teachers with annual stipends who are deemed highly effective and who mentor their peers The Governor would also create a teacher in residency program akin to what is provided for doctors and offer free tuition to top SUNY CUNY graduates who commit to teaching in New York schools for five years The Governor s proposal also continues to provide grants for the P Tech Pathways in Technology and Early College High School program which connects high school to two years of college in the STEM fields Cuomo outlined a plan to address what he called failing schools that would allow a nonprofit turnaround expert or another district to take over a school after three years of poor results This entity would be charged with overhauling the curriculum terminating underperforming staff and recruiting high performing educators These schools would be given priority in a variety of state grant programs and the students would be given priority in charter school lotteries The Governor proposed combining the charter school caps for New York City and the rest of the state into one statewide cap and increasing it by 100 new charter schools for a total cap of 560 Under the existing caps there are 24 slots left for new charter schools in New York City and 159 slots available statewide The governor also proposed legislation to ensure that charter schools serve their fair share
