    outcomes in those cases where there are fewer than 10 principals in a district.

    opportunities and to inform a principal’s professional growth plan, tenure decisions,
    compensation decisions, and recommendations for continued employment.

    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 information presented below will help you understand Allamuchy Township’s
    policies and procedures for evaluating teachers and educational specialists such as
    librarians and counselors. 
     
    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. 
     
    Section 1. Description of Teacher Evaluation System 
     
    The Allamuchy Township Board of Education believes that the effective evaluation of
    teaching staff is essential to the achievement of the educational goals of this district,
    including student achievement of the Core Curriculum Content Standards. The purpose of
    this evaluation shall be to promote professional excellence and improve the skills of
    teaching staff members, improve pupil learning and growth, and provide a basis for the
    review of staff performance. 
     
    The teacher evaluation process includes but is not limited to the following evidence:
    formal observation using Charlotte Danielson’s Teacher Evaluation Framework, teacher
    work portfolio, walk-through observations, post observation conference, teacher work
    samples, teacher’s professional development plan, progress in completing professional
    development hours, and teacher self evaluation. 
    The results of the teacher evaluation system are used to plan professional development
    opportunities and to inform a teacher’s professional development plan, tenure decisions,
    recommendations for continued employment, selection of teachers for specific roles or
    duties, teacher placement decisions, and decisions on teacher awards or recognitions. 
    Tenured teaching staff members shall be observed and evaluated at least once each year
    by properly certified persons. Non-tenured teaching staff members shall be observed and
    evaluated at least three times each year by properly certified district staff. All teachers
    shall receive an annual summative written performance report.
