The New Jersey Department of Education is committed to recognizing and rewarding the excellence achieved by New Jersey educators and schools. Within the Office of Recruitment, Preparation, and Recognition, our work on recognition will continue to focus on aligning educator evaluation and support systems with opportunities for acknowledgment and appreciation. As educators are recognized through a variety of national and state programs each year, we will continue to keep clear lines of communication open with these educators in order to inform them of and seek their participation in statewide and national initiatives. We also intend to implement a statewide effort to highlight all of the many contributions effective educators make to their students, schools, and communities.
