Set-up begins Aug. 2 for electronic Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (eTPES)
On Aug. 2, superintendents or their designees may begin conducting their set-up within the electronic Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (eTPES). We ask that superintendents and superintendent designees who are new to their districts ensure that their role designations and email addresses are current in the Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS) by Friday, Aug. 4. These individuals will receive an email message with login information during the week of Aug. 7.
Administrators who used the system last year and remain in the same district can log in to eTPES using their current logins and passwords. We ask that superintendents or their designees complete the set-up by Wednesday, Oct. 18.
Please remember that safe harbor does not apply to teacher and principal evaluations for school year 2017-2018. Value-Added data will be used to assess student academic growth for teacher and principal evaluations. Ohio Revised Code outlines these requirements in sections 3319.112(A)(1)(a) and (A)(1)(b). Please see Business Rules for Student Growth Measures for guidance.
