School Staff Evaluation in New Jersey.
New Jersey School Boards Association, Trenton.; Research for Better Schools, Inc., Philadelphia, PA.
This handbook, produced largely as a result of the adoption of New Jersey's regulation for the evaluation of tenured teaching staff members (NJAC 6:3-1.21), recommends processes which will assist local school districts in complying with the law. Three major sections are presented: (1) the regulations--a copy of a New Jersey Administrative Code, Education, Title 6:3-1.21; guidelines of the state education department; roles and responsibilities of boards of education and chief school administrators; and a management plan; (2) detailed suggestions on carrying out a staff evaluation program, including recordkeeping, indicators of effectiveness, reporting, and development of school district policy; and (3) other factors, such as preparing written policy, developing job descriptions, superintendent evaluation, school board evaluation, legal issues, and negotiations. Exhibits include sample policies concerning evaluation; a matrix of staff responsibilities; evaluation criteria; methods of data collection and persons able to provide different types of information; job descriptions; rating scales for evaluating superintendents, school boards, and teachers; a glossary; and a bibliography.
