A Senate Republican-backed bill that would decouple state examinations from how teachers and principals are evaluated will likely be a non-starter in the Democratic-led Assembly.

The bill introduced Monday night would decouple the exams from the evaluations, but also expand charter schools in the state.

“I urge my partners in government to work with the members of our Senate Republican Majority to approve this important education reform package so we can deliver an extraordinary result to the people of New York,” Republican Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan said in a statement.

But Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie in an interview on Tuesday said his Democratic conference would oppose efforts to link the evaluation legislation to additional issues. Expanding or strengthening charter schools in New York has been a heavier lift for Assembly Democrats in recent years, though the conference is not uniformly opposed to the non-traditional public schools.

In the interview, Heastie said Senate Republicans should take up the version of the bill the Assembly previously approved this year.

“We passed the bill, but we’re not looking to load it up with other things, particularly other things the conference is not interested in doing,” Heastie said. “If the Senate Republicans truly want to have a permanent change on APPR, they can just pass the bill we passed.”

Decoupling state exams from teacher evaluations would gut a key provision in an education overhaul bill that was championed in 2016 by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

The education law at the time was hotly opposed by the state’s teachers unions, who are backing the effort to decouple the exams from the evaluations.

Cuomo has indicated he would sign a bill decoupling exams from evaluations.
