School Staffing and Performance Management in Newark Public Schools. Executive Summary
New Teacher Project
In the winter and spring of 2009, The New Teacher Project (TNTP) partnered with Newark Public Schools (NPS) to investigate the impact of the school district's policies and practices on the ability of schools to build and maintain strong instructional teams. TNTP's analysis of policy and practice in NPS, funded by The Prudential Foundation, reveals that under current NPS policies and practices, late hiring, inadequate communication with applicants, forced placement of teachers and ineffective use of evaluation data prevent Newark schools from building effective instructional teams.
