AchieveNJ Implementation Support Workshops – July 2016

The Office of Evaluation is offering Regional Workshops designed to support district implementation of the proposed regulatory changes to AchieveNJ.  Each session will introduce tools, guidance, and best practices related to the updated regulations and lessons learned over the first three years of AchieveNJ.  Each Regional Workshop will contain sessions in the following four areas:

  1. Highly Effective Educator Option: Participants will engage with the requirements and protocols for optional differentiated evaluation for educators rated "Highly Effective".

  2. SGO Quality: Participants will be provided with the latest resources in designing SGOs which are aligned to standards, grounded in data, and driven by high expectations.

  3. Supporting School Leaders:  Participants will explore a toolkit of strategies related to AchieveNJ, designed to improve observation accuracy, add value to educators, and strengthen the quality of districts' implementation of AchieveNJ.

  4. Teacher Preparation: Participants will be provided with information relative recent changes to teacher preparation in New Jersey including extended clinical practice (student teaching) and the new performance assessment for all teacher candidates.  The presentation will address the impact and potential benefits of these changes for P-12 partners.

A team of three educators – a teacher leader, a school leader and a district leader – would provide a good combination for the workshop approach the Office of Evaluation plans to use.  Districts who wish to bring additional participants to these workshops should contact us at  Please refer to the AchieveNJ Update and visit the event registration page for more information and to register.
