What is the difference between a IPDP and a CAP?

Under NJ code, teachers must complete 20 hours of Professional Development each year.  Your IPDP (Individual Professional Development Plan) describes how you will reach those 20 hours, and what goals you are working towards meeting through your professional development.

Non-Tenured Teachers

By May 15, you should receive either a non-reoffering letter or a contract in the mail for the 2018-2019 school year from the Newark Public Schools.


If you are a non-tenured teacher who received a letter of non-reoffering, you need to reach out to the Newark Teachers Union immediately!  Email and he will discuss your case with you.

I’ve gotten some questions about Mid-Year Evaluations, so I am resending this info we’ve sent out in the past
