NTU CONCERNS OVER ACHIEVE NJ
NTU met with NJDOE Commissioner Hespe and State Senator Theresa Ruiz earlier this week over concerns surrounding the AchieveNJ Evaluation Framework and the districts inconsistent application of the regulations.
Some schools got it right and others got it completely wrong. Commissioner Hespe & Senator Ruiz expressed varied degrees of concern over the member survey results NTU provided to them. We were also greatly concerned with the DOE statement in the press that they had not yet disaggregated the data for urban teachers of SpED and ELL.
For now, it is vital that NTU members:
Step 1: Document, document, document, any/all deficiency or misapplication of AcheiveNJ or Evaluation Framework.
Step 2: Contact the Peer Oversight Committee regarding inconsistencies at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 3: Contact the State NJDOE at: email@example.com or call directly 609-777-3788 if you still have questions or wish to file a report.
