Teacher and principal evaluator training for β€œre-calibrating” credentials is available

Training and tests are now available for educators who need to update their credentials as evaluators for the Ohio Teacher or Principal Evaluation Systems. The National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET) is administering the re-calibration process. To successfully complete re-calibration, which is required every two years, teacher evaluators must take three hours of online training and principal evaluators must take two hours of online training. Both teacher and principal evaluators also need to pass the appropriate tests. More information is available on the department’s website.
