The Department of Education will be supplementing its supervision of teachers in the Absent Teacher Reserve (ATR) pool. Under this initiative, teachers will be supervised by a licensed administrator, called a Field Supervisor, who will periodically observe practice and provide feedback to support professional development.
Additionally, the Field Supervisor will be responsible for making recommendations to the appropriate District Superintendent for final ratings and/or tenure. As a teacher in the ATR pool who is rotating assignments weekly you will be covered by this initiative.
At some point next month, you should expect your Field Supervisor to visit your assignment site to meet with you in person. At this initial meeting, the Field Supervisor will work with you to develop a plan to support your professional growth and job search process. The Field Supervisor will make an effort to contact you via your DOE email in advance of the initial meeting to give you a sense of when you can expect him or her; however, he or she may not always be able to provide advance notification.
