While many aspects of the evaluation requirements are mandated by the NYS Education Department, the District strives to create structures and systems that allow for the ongoing exchange of ideas between administrators and teachers. The following documents provide you with detailed information on the District's teacher and administrator evaluation systems.

  • Tri-State Consortium

    The Eastchester School District is a member of the Tri-State Consortium.  The Tri-State Consortium is a "dynamic learning organization of public school districts that values systems thinking as the foundation for continuous improvement. The Consortium assists its member districts in using quantitative and qualitative data to enhance student performance and to build a rigorous framework for planning, assessment, and systemic change. Collaborating as colleagues and critical friends, Consortium members apply the standards of the Tri-State model to benchmark member districts' progress in advancing teaching and learning."

    During the 2017-2018 school year, the District participated in hosting a visitation team from neighboring school districts to assist in the District's desire to examine its homework practices.  Click the link below to read the report provided to the District regarding the findings of the visitation team.

  • Dignity for All Students Act

    The EUFSD Board of Education recognizes that a learning environment that is safe and supportive can increase student attendance and improve academic achievement. A student’s ability to learn and achieve high academic standards, and a school’s ability to educate students, is compromised by incidents of discrimination or harassment, including but not limited to bullying, taunting, hazing and intimidation. The District will strive to create an environment free of discrimination and harassment and will foster civility in the schools to prevent and prohibit conduct which is inconsistent with the District’s educational mission.


    The District condemns and prohibits all forms of discrimination and harassment of students based on actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex by school employees or students on school property or at school-sponsored events and activities that take place on or off of school property. In addition, any act of discrimination or harassment outside of school-sponsored events which can reasonably be expected to materially and substantially disrupt the educational process may be subject to discipline.
