NJ's Instructional Improvement System
Resources for Cohort 3 (All districts committed after April 2015)
Statement of Services and Commitment – This document can be requested by emailing edConnectNJ@doe.state.nj.us . This document outlines the expectations and services that the NJDOE will provide to the districts as well as the commitment the district must have to ensure successful implementation of edConnectNJ. Districts signing a commitment to implement by June 30, 2105 will be live by September 2015. Intent received after June 30, 2015 may not be live by start of school, timelines vary by SIS.
Demo edConnect with Self Guided Tour - Find credentials to log-in to a demo edConnect and a self guided tour. edConnect has three modules: School & District Data, Classrooms, and Assessment Admin.
System Comparison Planning Tool - Compare the systems in place currently in your district with the features of the IIS. The spreadsheet lays out all of the functions that the edConnect presents by role. Each "x" indicates that that specific role has the ability to use that feature. The first column on the spreadsheet allows you to add systems that you currently have in place that provides that function and the empty columns to the right allow you to check off which roles can access the functionality of those systems. Once you complete this exercise it will provide you with a good picture of how impactful the all in one IIS can be.
