We will continue to update and add resources!
 
Your District may require you to develop Student Growth Objectives (SGOs) for the 2013-2014 school year. The New Jersey Department of Education does not mandate that school librarians develop SGOs, however, it allows each individual school district to decide whether or not school librarians develop them. (http://www.state.nj.us/education/AchieveNJ/intro/SpecialistsandOthersOverview.pdf)  
Many of our districts are opting to require each school librarian to develop two SGOs for the 2013-2014 school year.  If this is the case, 85% of your evaluation score will be based on observations, and 15% of your evaluation score will be based on your SGOs.  Please see Tim Matheney's (Director of Evaluation, Achieve NJ) presentation at the link on the left side of this webpage for more information on this.
A committee of NJASL volunteers has diligently worked on creating exemplar Student Growth Objectives in conjunction with the NJ Department of Education since last Spring.   The exemplars have been preliminarily approved and can be accessed through the links on the left side of this website.
Finally, if you have developed an SGO that has been approved by your administration, please send it to me. A small collection of approved SGOs has been developed, but we need your contributions to keep it growing.   You can email me your District approved SGO to amyrominiecki AT juno.com
We understand that many school librarians have already begun writing their own SGOs and are in need of guidance. You are welcome to let me know if you have any questions or concerns as you begin this process at amyrominiecki AT juno.com
