The Herricks School District will have to start the Annual Professional Performance Review (APPR) program sooner than they anticipated, Superintendent Dr. John Bierwirth reported during a meeting of the board of education this past Thursday at the community center.
The district was originally going to fully implement the system in 2014 but they are now being required to start this next year or risk losing state aid, Bierwirth said.
The APPR program that the district is planning on implementing will cost about $175,000. When asked whether that was a small or large amount for this process, Bierwirth said it was “on the low end of a middle range.”
He added that some costs that are related to initial training will not be in place each year.
