Guidance Document on New York State’s Annual Professional Performance Review
School librarians and career and technical teachers are teachers in the classroom teaching service and are, therefore, subject to the new law beginning in the
2012-13 school year if they are teachers of record.
B12. When must school librarians be evaluated under Education Law § 3012-c?
in the 2012-2013 school year, all classroom teachers and building
principals must be evaluated under Education Law § 3012-c. “Classroom
teacher” is defined as a teacher in the classroom teaching service who
is a teacher of record. Librarians who are certified as a library media
specialist or school media specialist (library) are teachers in the
classroom teaching service. Therefore, if a certified library media
specialist or school media specialist (library) is a teacher of record,
he/she would be considered a “classroom teacher” and therefore must be
evaluated under Education Law § 3012-c.
certified librarian who is not a teacher of record is not a “classroom
teacher” and therefore would not need to be evaluated under Education
Law § 3012-c
B2. What is a “teacher of record” in 2012-2013 and subsequent years?
the 2012-2013 school year and subsequent years, teacher of record is
defined as those teachers who are primarily and directly responsible for
a student’s learning activities that are aligned to the performance
measures of a course. Beginning in the 2011-12 school year and school
years thereafter, NYSED will collect additional data elements to support
teacher of record determinations for evaluation purposes. These data
elements will allow for identification of additional teachers of record
for a course, if applicable, and will allow for the adjustment of the
weighting of a student-learning result on a teacher evaluation
(for example, based on partial-course student enrollment or teacher
assignment). NYSED will work with its growth/value-added measures
provider, the Regents Task Force, and industry-standards groups to
determine when and how these additional data will affect the way
students, teachers, courses, and assessments are connected for
