Teachers covered by the Advance evaluation system may use the APPR complaint form to ask their principal for assistance in resolving an issue with the implementation of the teacher evaluation system. The teacher must file this form within five school days of knowledge of the act or occurrence that led to this request.
A special complaint resolution process has been created for the 2020-21 school year only. Prior to receiving a final rating this year, teachers who believe they have been rated improperly as the result of a procedural violation can seek help through this resolution request. These requests can be filed on the basis of procedural violations, such as an evaluator citing evidence outside the definitions of rubric components.
Please note that you must be logged in to UFT.org and a teacher covered by the Advance evaluation system in order to access this form.
If you have any questions, please call the UFT at 212-331-6311 or contact your UFT district representative.
