Since legislation was passed in 2015, NJEA has been in the lead at working with the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) to create a teacher leader endorsement to be attached to an instructional certificate. With the successful adoption of regulations in 2019, The NJEA Teacher Leader Academy (TLA) applied and was approved by the NJDOE to run their own program that leads members to this new endorsement.
