(Continued)

Niagara Gazette — In other district news, Knowles gave an update on the status of the district's Annual Professional Performance Review plans submitted to the state Education Department earlier this month. He said the district participated in a conference call with department representatives and was asked to correct minor issues and resubmit the plans for approval.

APPR, designed to provide more rigorous assessments of teachers and administrators throughout the state, is required to grant districts access to millions of federal dollars through President Barack Obama's Race To The Top education initiative.

Knowles said the district will resubmit both the teacher and principal plans Thursday afternoon for approval, he said, before the state's deadline of the end of 2012.
