Educator Evaluation System

Educator Evaluation System
 
During the 2013-2014 school year, New Jersey will be in full implementation of the new statewide educator evaluation system.  In 2012, the State Legislature approved the TEACHNJ Act.  (Official citation for the statewide initiative is:  C.18A:6-117.  It is known as the "Teacher Effectiveness and Accountability for the Children of New Jersey Act.")
 
On March 6, 2013, NJDOE proposed regulations outlining educator evaluation policies for the 2013-14 school year.  This statewide evaluation system is called AchieveNJ.
 
Our district established a District Evaluation Advisory Committee (DEAC) during the 2011-12 school year.  The committee consisted of several stakeholders including parents, teachers, administrators and board of education members.  They reviewed, evaluated and selected the Danielson Framework for Teaching as the observation tool for teachers.  The Marshall Evaluation Rubric was selected for the administrators in the district.  As additional requirements are provided by the New Jersey Department of Education, the DEAC will reconvene during the 2013-14 school year.
