Districts are required to advise families of the opportunity to obtain the composite effectiveness score and final quality rating for their child’s current teacher(s) and principal, and to make that information available to those families who request it. Districts are barred from releasing individual results for specific teachers and principals to the media or the public, even in response to a Freedom of Information Law request.
The law also prescribes that it is “the composite effectiveness score” that is to be released. So separate subcomponents such as the recently distributed state-generated growth scores are NOT subject to release, not even to families. If you have a request related to the information above, please contact the Superintendent of Schools directly. Thank you.
