New Professional Development Regulations
Revised regulations for educator professional development were adopted by the New Jersey State Board of Education on June 5, 2013. These regulations address recommendations from the Governor's 2012 Transformation Task Force, which called for more streamlined structures for professional development planning at the school and district levels, and align with the 2012 TEACHNJ legislation. The new regulations include a new definition of professional development and revised Standards for Professional Learning which are intended to support a move away from compliance-driven professional development toward a focus on continuous improvement for enhanced student outcomes.
