OPA Auditorium – 1:15 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Parking will be allowed on both sides of the street by OPA Auditorium and OHS.
Each staff member will PRINT their NAME and SCHOOL on an index card upon entering the auditorium that will be given by OEA Reps as attendance verification. Please return the card on your way out to receive your PD Certificate that you attended the workshop. You may enter certificate information for your attendance at the workshop into “My Learning Plan”.
The entire body will begin together and then we will break out into two separate Professional Development Workshops:
ESP Workshop (Cafeteria):
ESP – Who We Are!
This workshop is all about promoting the work you do. Learn strategies to better reach your members and motivate them to participate in association activities and feel like part of a family. Inspire your members to help your association connect with your community. Let’s make some great things happen in your local, and it all starts with you!
Certificated Staff (Auditorium):
Preparing for Your Summative Evaluation
With the passage of TEACHNJ and AchieveNJ, the summative evaluation process for teachers has changed dramatically. This workshop will focus upon the compiling of important data and aligning data and artifacts to evaluation rubrics in an effort to predict and achieve high summative evaluation ratings. Participants will understand each component of their summative evaluation, how each component is derived, and discuss advocacy methods for improving summative evaluation scores.
