Teacher & Administrator Evaluations

Introduction

As part of the federal requirements for states’ receiving funding 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 they use to evaluate teachers and principals. The informationpresented below will help you understand Little Ferry’s policies and procedures for evaluating teachers and educational specialists such as librarians and counselors. The Little Ferry Board of Education employs less than 10 principals; therefore it is not necessary to post their evaluation information.

Description of Teacher Evaluation System

The Little Ferry Public School District employs an evaluation model based on Charlotte Danielson’s Teacher Evaluation Framework. The framework identifies four critical domains: Planning and Preparation, Classroom Environment, Instruction and Professional Responsibilities of effective teaching. Using a range of feedback mechanisms, the district evaluates each educator based on performance within these domains. In our school district, non-tenured teachers are formally evaluated three (3) times per year, while teachers that have accrued tenure, are formally evaluated one (1) time per year. The administration routinely informally evaluates teachers and they make their rounds through the school buildings. The evaluation system requires a pre and post conference between the administrator and staff member. The evaluation of teachers encompasses many varied steps of which formal lessons are a single component. Our overall evaluation system has four (4) domains that are evaluated: Domains one (1), two (2) & three (3) consists of teacher & student work products such as lesson plans, grade books, their formal evaluation(s) & the student progress. Domain four (4) consists of professional responsibilities such as contributions to the school & district, in-service & workshops attended, use of technology, & their professional improvement plans (PIP). As you can see, teachers are rated on very stringent guidelines.
