New York teachers reviewing their evaluation results

By now, New York teachers and principals should know whether they are considered "highly effective," "ineffective" or somewhere in between.

This week was the deadline for the state's nearly 700 school districts to complete state-mandated evaluations for the 2012-13 school year.

Teachers and principals received a grade of 0 to 100 based on a combination of state and local measures.

State officials have pushed the evaluations as a way to improve educators' effectiveness and in turn, boost student performance. Districts have to report their results to the state Department of Education by mid-October.  Until then, it's unknown how many of the state's teachers fall within any category.

Parents can request their child's teacher's rating from their district. Otherwise, the information will remain private.
