I know all of you are busy with closing out the school year and working on the Compliance component of the Sponsor Evaluation, however, I wanted to take a moment to share some information with you from our office.
• The sponsor evaluation submission for the compliance component is Friday, June 29, 2018, 11:59 PM. Document submissions can be removed or replaced until the submission deadline.
Per ORC 3314.016, the community school sponsor evaluation system “shall be developed and posted on the department's web site by the fifteenth day of July of each school year. Beginning in 2018, the training shall be made available to each entity that sponsors a community school by the fifteenth day of July of each year and shall include guidance on any changes made to the evaluation system.”
Dear Sponsors/Community School,
I wanted to send out a few points of clarification specific to the five-year forecasts based upon our review of the early submissions. We recommend the sponsor review the five-year forecasts for accuracy and completeness prior to submission into Epicenter.
As we move toward the end of May and past the deadline for the Quality Practices portion of the Sponsor Evaluation, we wanted to send a few updates and reminders.
The last day to submit comments and feedback on the 2018-2019 Sponsor Evaluation tools is Friday, May 18. Links to the documents are available in the box at the top of the Community Schools webpage. Please send your comments and feedback to Sponsor.Evaluation@education.ohio.gov.
