A bill introduced this month in the Democratic-led Assembly would alter the education measures approved in the $142 billion state budget.

The measure would revise key deadlines for teacher evaluations, alter the funding linkage for the adoption of new evaluation criteria on the local level and provide modifications to the evaluation language itself.

The bill comes after Gov. Andrew Cuomo pushed for the education reform measures in the budget, linking the policy to an overall boost in education aid, which most Democrats in the Assembly reluctantly accepted.

The measure’s introduction, which comes in the final weeks of the legislative session, underscores the deep dissatisfaction within the chamber over the education policy changes within the Legislature as well as the statewide teachers union, NYSUT.

The measure would extend the deadline for the Board of Regents to adopt the evaluation criteria from June 30 to Nov. 17 of this year. The Board of Regents had previously signaled it will meet the June 30 deadline for determining how much weight to give in-classroom observation versus a standardized test.

But lawmakers want to extend the deadline time in order to align with the amount of time usually prescribed for regulation writing under the State Administrative Procedure Act.

The linkage of education aid to adopting the evaluation criteria on the district level would end. School districts would have a one-year extension to adopting the APPR requirements.

The measure would also provide an $8.4 million allocation for printing more test forms in grades 3 through 8 in both English Language Arts and math assessment, as well eliminate stand-alone multiple choice field tests.

A “significant amount” of test questions and answers would be required to be released by June 1 each year.

A review committee would be formed to ensure tests in ELA and math are grade level appropriate, while the commissioner of education would be required to review the Common Core education standards and recommend potential changes.

Lawmakers have signaled for weeks now they will push for changes to the education measures, though significant changes will likely face opposition from Cuomo, who plans to once again push for a lifting of the state’s cap on charter schools.

Separate from the education talks is an effort to create a tax credit to spur donations to public schools and private scholarship programs, which Assembly Democrats have opposed in the past.
