Proposed teacher evaluation regs introduced

Published on Friday, March 8, 2013

Evaluation ResourcesThe N.J. Department of Education (NJDOE) has released its proposed regulations for teacher evaluation. The State Board of Education (SBOE) got its first look at the proposal at its meeting on Wednesday, March 6.

You can view the proposed regulations and a PowerPoint  presentation made by NJDOE officials at the SBOE meeting.

Starting on March 13, the NJDOE will hold eight presentations across the state to communicate the details of these regulations. NJEA members are encouraged to attend one of these free events. The department has stated that these presentations “will provide an opportunity for educators to not only learn more about the system, but also to provide feedback to the department on how best to support local districts as they  implement changes.” The dates, locations and times are:

NJEA staff and leaders have carefully analyzed the 104 pages of regulation language and have prepared an FAQ document for members. See your local association president for more information.

It is more important than ever that State Board of Education members hear from teachers about how these regulations will affect education in New Jersey. For instructions on how to contact SBOE members, see Take Action on Teacher Evaluation. Updated talking points will soon be available.
