Department seeking districts to pilot 2019-2020 revised draft OTES


Recent Ohio law brought about changes to the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES). The Ohio Department of Education plans an OTES pilot to gather feedback on the draft revisions to the OTES process. The 2019-2020 pilot based on the revised draft OTES now is open to all districts and community schools that want to take part.
Districts and community schools that want to participate must submit completed Intent to Participate forms by June 1. These participating schools must bring small teams to three regional trainings throughout the 2019-2020 school year. Evaluators and teachers will use the components and forms associated with the revised draft OTES to inform possible changes to the OTES model, as well as help shape training for the 2020-2021 implementation.
