Educator Recruitment, Preparation, and Recognition
On June 5, the Department proposed regulations to the State Board to increase the bar for entry to the teaching profession in New Jersey. Please see the Division of Teacher and Leader Effectiveness Regulations and Activities Update for more information.
FAQs on the proposed regulations are found here.
In addition, we are developing an annual report to provide Educator Preparation Providers (EPPs) with a snapshot of performance data, including information on teacher certification area and employment, placement, retention, and evaluation outcomes for EPP graduates. We also seek to enhance our current approval processes for preparation programs and to determine how the state can better support these programs.
