ATSNJ and NJDOE Athletic Trainer Evaluation Tools

Over the past year, The Department of Education has worked with a team of accomplished professionals from the Athletic Trainers’ Society of New Jersey to develop an evaluation instrument that districts may choose to adopt.  While the Department does not require the use of these documents, it supports the ATSNJ in its efforts to promote the use of an evaluation tool that addresses the specific job responsibilities of athletic trainers. As the Department continues to develop guidance for staff members in specialized roles, it will continue to learn from the ATSNJ and its partner districts during their first year piloting this evaluation model.
