In case you missed, Chris Cerf, the former Commissioner of Education in NJ, resigned late last week. Chris Cerf has been responsible for many of the mandates imposed on the districts in NJ, including CCTS!

Here is NJEA President, Wendell Steinhauer’s response to Cerf’s resignation, please read as CamVoc believes it provides valuable insight to the motivation behind new state-wide regulations that we have been dealing with: http://njea.org/news/2014-02-11/njea-on-cerf-resignation-time-for-a-new-start-and-new-approach

Also, please remember to “let your voice be heard” by writing to the State BOE about how the rushed implementation of various regulations surrounding tenure and evaluation (Danielson Evaluation Tool, the SGO Process, Summative Scores for Teachers, etc.) have impacted teaching and learning in our district: http://njea.org/news/2014-01-28/tell-your-story-to-the-sboe

Your Story

This is has been a hectic year for teachers around  New Jersey. We have all been dealing with many big changes around evaluation, student growth objectives, tenure reform, and the transition to a new state test, PARCC.

On February 5, 2014, the State Board of Education will be hearing from teachers around the state about how these issues have affected our the lives of our students and our profession/classroom practice. Our association president, Ryan McCarty, will be attending the state board of education meeting to express our concerns, but the state would also like to hear from ALL of us!

Below is a link that will enable you to communicate directly with board of ed. The more teachers we have respond, the better. Please provide as much specific and viable feedback as possible – we want our voices heard!
