NYSUT/NYSSCA and APPR

NYSSCA is working closely with NYSUT to help protect the rights of school counselors employed throughout New York State.  We have a joint Q&A on APPR available to help answer questions regarding what is required for school counselors at this time.  Be sure to check back for updates on APPR as they become available.  Send your questions and comments directly to our APPR Committee Chair, Dr. Barbara Donnellan at APPR@nyssca.org
