NJASA Legal Department Research Services – February 2014 edition now online
The February 2014 issue of the NJASA Legal Research Publication Program is now available online to subscribers. The TEACHNJ Act was designed to promote effective and efficient teachers and principals through a new performance evaluation system. In its implementing regulations, the New Jersey Department of Education called this system “AchieveNJ.” This Administrative Guide will discuss these recently adopted educator effectiveness and evaluation regulations.
In addition, the School News Briefs reviews five new cases, including one in which the Appellate Division affirmed the trial court’s denial of insurance coverage to a Board of Education for emergency asbestos abatement where a contractor disturbed the asbestos necessitating cleanup. In another case, a former superintendent’s teaching and administrative certificates were revoked following his guilty plea to federal crimes.
The February 2014 Impact on Negotiations reviews four cases including one in which the PERC Designee granted the association interim relief, reversing the board’s decision that reduced paraprofessionals’ work hours from 35 to 28 hours per week.
