Providing Technical Assistance to the New Jersey Department of Education

Dates: 2014 - 2015

The Mid-Atlantic Comprehensive Center (MACC) is a federally-funded organization housed at WestEd that provides technical assistance to states as they work to improve and reform public schools. As a MACC partner, RFA worked with the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) on a range of initiatives related to teacher preparation and professional development. To date, we have summarized how various states approach alternative certification routes, and surveyed alternative certification providers in New Jersey to gather data on program delivery and design. In 2015, we assisted NJDOE in examining state-required teacher professional development.
