Based on recommendations made in the NJ Educator Effectiveness Taskforce Report, all districts in New Jersey are required to adopt a comprehensive teacher evaluation program that meets criteria provided by the NJDOE.  For more information about the Teacher Evaluation initiative, visit the Achieve NJ Website.


The Freehold Borough District Evaluation Advisory Council (DEAC) has been formed with representation for the following key stakeholder groups: teachers, building administrators, district administrators, the Board of Education, parents, and teacher association leaders.  The information on this page reflects the work of this team.
