DART 2014-2015 Report

Teaching is the Core Grant


As a result of the NYSED Teaching is the Core Grant awarded to the HFM BOCES-led consortium, our district had the opportunity to review student assessments related to the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR). Our district assessment review team (D.A.R.T.) which is comprised of teachers and administrators, who have been trained on the assessment review process, reviewed 68 assessments.  Based on this extensive review, our

recommendations are as follows:

  • Keep 56 assessments

  • Modify 6 assessments


Our district has now completed the assessment review process of the grant. As a result, the review team has designed an action plan for implementation into the 2015-2016 school year and beyond to continue to focus on the assessment review process.  The plan will ensure that teachers are continuing to design and use assessments that will inform instruction and support student learning.  The action plan can be seen in its entirety here.
