WEST VALLEY — The West Valley Central School Board of Education was informed, during its Jan. 7 meeting, that its district teachers and staff members passed their annual performance review “with flying colors.”
That review, performed by New York, is an annual process by which the state evaluates teachers. According to Secretary Carolyn Boberg, the district is required to complete and submit that plan.
“Superintendent Eric Lawton congratulated staff and Principal Dan Amodeo for their work,” Boberg said. “It was a challenging process and one the district tries, each year, to pass.”
