American Statistical Association Statement on Using Value-Added Models for Educational Assessment

Many of you have raised questions about how opting out of standardized tests affects your district, your teachers and your students. A great deal of misinformation has been spread, either unwittingly or deliberately, by school district officials and others. Attached is a NYSUT fact sheet that sets the record straight regarding the consequences and non-consequences of opting out. It also provides guidance about how and when members can speak about opting out without being at risk of disciplinary consequences.

NYSUT has reacted strongly to Governor Cuomo’s anti-teacher, anti-public education agenda and we have pressed our agenda with great force.

Rep Council Meetings are held monthly for the purposes of completing the business of the Syosset Teachers Union. Each building elects representatives (1 per 10 members, or greater part thereof), including a Head Rep, who are responsible for attending meetings and voting on behalf of their staff. Head Reps, along with the support of building reps, then disseminate information.
