School Board review of personnel records
School Board review of personnel records Matter of Meyer and Pavalow and the Katonah-Lewisboro Union Free School, Commissioner of Education Decision No. 15,436 Two members of the Katonah-Lewisburg School Board asked to have personnel records of certain employees and former employees of the District brought to a Board meeting in order "to enable the Board to carry out its legal responsibilities under the Education Law." When the full board declined to go into executive session to discuss these files, the two board members appealed to the Commissioner. The Commissioner denied the appeal, observing that "The record is devoid of any evidence that petitioners articulated specific reasons to the superintendent or the board, at any time prior to the board's vote denying their requests to review the records." As the two board members failed to state specifically how reviewing these records would enable to the board to carry out its legal responsibilities, the Commissioner determined that the board's refusal to adjourn into executive session was neither arbitrary nor capricious and thus there was no violation of Part 84 by the Board.

- Unsatisfactory rating voided because employee's "performance review," failed to comply with the employer's own procedures and thus undermined the integrity of the process Joyce v City of New York, 2018 NY Slip Op 03433, Appellate Division, First Department The Appellate Division annulled the determination of respondent New York City Department of Education [DOE] sustaining the "unsatisfactory" rating for the 2010-2011 academic year give to John Joyce, a tenured teacher. The court said that the record demonstrates "deficiencies in the performance review process" that resulted in Mr. Joyce being given an unsatisfactory rating for the 2010-2011 academic year. Citing Matter of Gumbs v Board of Educ. of the City Sch. Dist. of the City of N.Y., 125 AD3d 484, and Matter of Richards v Board of Educ. of the City Sch. Dist. of the City of N.Y., 117 AD3d 605, the Appellate Division noted that these deficiencies "were not merely technical, but undermined the integrity and fairness of the process." Mr. Joyce had received a satisfactory rating for the previous academic year and, in contravention of its own procedures, DOE failed to place him on notice that he was in danger of receiving an unsatisfactory rating for the 2010-2011 academic year until after April 28, 2011. Although DOE's procedures required that tenured teachers in danger of receiving an unsatisfactory rating have "formal observations including a pre-observation and post-observation conference by the principal … as part of a prescriptive plan to improve their teaching," Mr. Joyce received only one formal observation which took place one week before the end of the academic year and was not part of a prescriptive plan to improve his performance as a teacher.
