The majority of teachers in five southern Bergen County districts are considered effective by the standards of AchieveNJ, the state's newest method of teacher evaluation, eliciting positive feedback from administrators.
The results, released on July 15, reflect teacher performance for the 2013-2014 school year for public schools.
According to the report, the majority of teachers in Englewood, Englewood Cliffs, Cresskill, Alpine and Tenafly school districts were evaluated as highly-effective or effective.
The evaluation places teachers into one of four categories: highly-effective, effective, partially-effective and ineffective.
Of 766 teachers, 177 were considered highly-effective and 549 were considered effective, according to visible evaluation results.
The results showed that 20 teachers were rated partially-effective. No ineffective teachers were reported in the results."
