  • Waives annual teacher evaluation requirement for certain teachers who supervise student teachers.
In Committee
Crossed Over
2016-2017 Regular Session
Under the "Teacher Effectiveness and Accountability for the Children of New Jersey (TEACHNJ) Act," P.L.2012, c.26 (C.18A:6-117 et al.), teachers are evaluated annually based on multiple measures, including measures of student achievement. Under this bill, a teacher who is rated highly effective under the evaluation system for at least two consecutive evaluation periods, or is rated effective or a combination of effective and highly effective for three consecutive evaluation periods, and who accepts responsibility to supervise a student teacher in the following school year, will have the annual evaluation requirement waived during the school year in which the teacher supervises the student teacher. A teacher whose annual evaluation requirement is waived under the bill's provisions is not precluded from supervising a student teacher in subsequent school years. This bill would remove concerns regarding the evaluation process that a consistently effective teacher might have in accepting a student teacher. By providing an incentive for consistently effective teachers to supervise student teachers, the bill helps ensure that our future teachers will garner real world experience from the State's best educators.
