Teacher Evaluation Report: 2009 – 2010
As part of the federal requirements for the 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 Montville Township's policies and procedures for evaluating teachers and educational specialists such as librarians and counselors.
Teacher evaluation is one piece of the professional improvement process for all faculty and staff. The purpose of teacher evaluation in the Montville Township School District is to provide formative feedback that encourages these professionals to become reflective practitioners and continuously improve practice.
Teachers have been evaluated using a checklist with additional information provided in a narrative format. Non-tenured teachers are assessed with a formal observation at least three times per year. Tenured teachers receive a formal observation at least once per year. The formal observation involves an observation and a post-conference. Unannounced observations may be used in conjunction with formal observations to increase feedback, to inform annual evaluations, and to guide professional improvement.
All teachers also receive an end-of-year evaluation. Additional observations, informal observations, and walk-through observations may be conducted by the administration as needed.
