 Literacy Night 2012

As part of the federal requirement for receiving funds under Phase 2 of the State Fiscal Stabilization Funds Program, all school districts in New Jersey are providing information to the public on the procedures used to evaluate teachers and principals.  The information presented below will help you understand the River Vale Board of Education procedures for evaluating teachers and educational specialists such as librarians and counselors.  

 

Tenured teachers are evaluated twice a year while non tenured teachers are evaluated four times a year. The multiple measures of assessment enable the District to assemble a range of evidence upon which to make decisions about efficacy, and to ensure that student learning is at the center of those decisions.  Evaluations include narratives and opportunities for conferences. The narrative includes comments, commendations, recommendations, goals-progress and completion, and a summative statement. Performance evaluation is informed through the written paragraphs and includes specific, as well as summative performance evaluation. Tenured Principals are evaluated formally once a year while non tenured principals are evaluated two times a year.

 

Confidentiality concerns: To protect the confidentiality of individual evaluations, districts are not required to provide a district-level statistical summary of teacher evaluation outcomes in those cases where there are fewer than 10 teachers in an entire district. Similarly, districts are not required to provide a school-level statistical summary of teacher evaluation outcomes if there are fewer than 10 teachers in a school.  The River Vale School District employs only three principals, hence for confidentiality reasons, no data is supplied.
