As May quickly approaches, it is getting closer to PDP time. Your PDP, or Individualized Professional Development Plan, is an integral part of your work here at CCTS. Your PDP, and the information that YOU put into your PDP will professional practice in the next subsequent year.
Your PDP is based on your evaluation and should be created based on how your formal and informal evaluations went during this school year. However, you have the power to write, with the consultation of your department supervisor, your professional goals for the following school year. This means: you can have a real impact on the PD that you attend in the following year. We know this is important to you, so it is important to us!
Please contact your association rep if you would like more information about your PDP.

Welcome back from Spring Break, we hope you had a great time. But, it’s time to get back to reality!
You may recall from last year’s SGO process, that the second “half” of the Student Growth Objective process takes place towards the end of the 3rd marking period. As it stands right now, our completed SGOs are due to your respective supervisors before May 1, 2015.
If you have not planned to, you should begin to plan and implement your “post-assessments,” so that you may collect and report the data prior to the due date. the NJDOE has many resources to support the SGO process; they are available here. If you have further questions regarding this process, please contact your association rep.

As an association, we believe that standardized assessments play an important role in guaging the work of a school. However, we also feel that the rushed implementation, on a state-level, of the new PARCC assessment system has had a negative impact on our schools, our administration, our members, and, most importantly, our students. We think that you should consider the impact that PARCC has had on your work and your students.
If you feel that PARCC should be implemented slower or differently, or, if students should have the legal right to “opt-out” of an assessment system, you shuold contact your State Senator. Please click on the following link, provided by our state-level education association, NJEA, to contact your State Senator.
Here is the link to contact your senator:
**PLEASE NOTE: CamVoc Education Association does not in anyway support or condone CamVoc members talking negatively about PARCC, or any other state-wide assessment, with students or parents during school hours. Please follow all disrict directives regarding these conversations.
