Warren Richmond, a Harris Beach partner and member of the firm’s Labor and Employment Law Practice Group and Educational Institutions Industry Team, published an article in the New York Law Journal that focuses on the new Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) plans for teachers and the limitations the statute places on school districts to terminate probationary teachers.

The article raises the failure of the law to define “performance” and “significant factor” and the consequences of the legislation in making it more difficult to terminate non-tenured teachers whose performance is inadequate or otherwise problematic.
