Superintendents may access Principal Value-Added Composite Reports

The electronic Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (eTPES) now displays principal composites as the default scores. Superintendents can access individualized Principal Value-Added Composite Reports through their SAFE accounts to help confirm the accuracy of those principal composite scores and complete principal and assistant principal evaluations this year. The reports include composite scores based on value-added measures from the one or more buildings where the principals and assistant principals served in these roles during the 2015-2016 school year.

Coaching permit holders have a new requirement

 A new state requirement from Ohio Senate Bill 252 (Lindsay’s Law), effective March 14, 2017, affects pupil activity (coaching) permit holders. All individuals who coach athletic activities must annually complete a sudden cardiac arrest course approved by the Ohio Department of Health. In early May, the Ohio Department of Health is expected to announce a new course for fulfilling this requirement. As soon as the training is available, we will notify districts of its availability and encourage them to have coaches complete it as soon as possible.
