The UFT believes that you are the best judge of a student’s achievement. Some supervisors have pressured teachers to pass undeserving students or, without the teacher’s consent, have unilaterally changed student grades. If this happens to you, immediately tell your chapter leader. To preserve the integrity of the grades you give your students, our contract requires supervisors to notify you in writing of the reason they have changed your students’ grades.

As of the 2023 contract, a new labor-management committee will be created to review and discuss strategic assessment planning that will support instruction and, where possible, reduce the amount of time spent on assessments.
