Hamburg Central agrees on teacher evaluation plan


Teachers and administrators at Hamburg Central have agreed on evaluation plans with the district.

The Hamburg School Board approved Annual Professional Performance Review plans earlier this month.

That’s a big change from three years ago, when the district lost state aid because there was no agreement on the teacher evaluation plan by the deadline imposed by New York State.

The Teachers Association and Administrative Council also approved the agreements.

At Frontier, retiring Big Tree Elementary Principal Joanne C. Saniewski said the important things are what happen in the classroom.

She was recognized last week for her 26 years with the district, as the School Board honored 21 retirees.

Julia Bermingham will become the new principal July.

This week:

• The Town Board meets in a work session at 5:30 p.m. Monday in Conference Room No. 1 followed by a regular meeting at 7 p.m. in the board room in Town Hall, 6100 South Park Ave.
