Recruitment, Preparation, and Induction
Please visit the COVID-19 guidance webpage for the latest information about performance assessment for teacher certification.
The Office of Recruitment, Preparation, and Induction (RPI) leads policy development to ensure that every student, school, and district will have access to well-trained, effective educators that meet the particular needs of their local communities. To do this, we must attract and retain excellent educators in New Jersey, ensure that they are prepared to be effective on their first day on the job, and recognize their contributions to our students and to the profession.
