Good morning Sponsor Representatives,
The 2017-2018 Sponsor Evaluation Documents are now available.
Good Afternoon Sponsor Representatives,
Now that the Ohio Department of Education has released 2016-2017 sponsor evaluation results, I want to remind you of a few items:
1. Ohio Revised Code 3314.016 lists all components of the sponsor evaluation, including the restrictions of an “Ineffective” rating (3314.016(B)(7)(i)). It’s important to remember that entities rated “Ineffective” are prohibited from sponsoring new or additional community schools as of Nov. 15, 2017. Such a sponsor also must develop a Quality Improvement Plan. The Quality Improvement Plan training will be Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017, at the Ohio Department of Education, 25 S. Front Street, Columbus. Remember that sponsors that receive overall ratings of “Ineffective” on their three most recent ratings will have their sponsorship revoked per Ohio law (ORC 3314.016(B)(7)(ii)).
I wanted to remind you, if you have not already done so, to register for the Ohio Department of Education’s 2017-2018 sponsor evaluation process training session to be held Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017, at the OCLC Conference Center, Dublin, Ohio. Trainers will explain all three evaluation components and share information on updates from the 2016-2017 sponsor evaluation process.
Did you know that the E-rate program made $150 per student available to help schools upgrade their Wi-Fi networks? Want to know how to get the most bandwidth for your budget?
The 2016-2017 sponsor evaluation ratings are now available online. The overall rating is based on three equally weighted components: academic performance, adherence to quality practices, and compliance with all applicable laws and rules. A copy of your overall rating will be emailed to you individually and the details of each rating are now available to view in Epicenter.
