NOTE A CORRECTION: Developing is listed as causing a salary freeze but people have said that is not so. I have an updated pdf with that point deleted for those interested in sharing with colleagues. Email me.
But this came in this morning from a David Weiner 2013 memo:
Disciplinary Action/Termination: Rather than simply moving forward with disciplinary action based on a teacher’s “Ineffective” rating, the DOE will only pursue disciplinary action (3020-a) for teachers rated poorly if principals agree. It is also important to note that principals can use their autonomy to go in another direction and recommend teachers rated “Developing” for 3020-a.
