AchieveNJ: Teacher Evaluation
In schools, teachers have the greatest influence on student learning. All students deserve great teachers, and all teachers deserve meaningful opportunities for growth. In 2012, the New Jersey Legislature unanimously passed the TEACHNJ Act, which mandated implementation of a new teacher evaluation system starting in the 2013 - 2014 school year and links tenure decisions to evaluation ratings. AchieveNJ is designed to recognize those who excel, identify those who need additional support, and provide meaningful feedback and professional development to all teachers.
