Educator Evaluation Process Review

Per SB 216, the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System will change beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. Districts and schools, other than those participating in the voluntary pilot program, will continue to use the current OTES system for 2019-2020.

There will be no changes for the 2019-2020 evaluations.

The Educator Evaluation Process Review is in effect statewide to support school districts in implementing educator evaluations. The department will conduct an annual review to ensure the districts are conducting evaluations with accuracy. Each Ohio district will participate in a review once every four years.  

Evaluation Review Findings


Self-Assessment Inventory Tool

This tool is an optional resource designed to help districts assess both their compliance with state regulations, as well as how well they are carrying out their evaluation systems. The Ohio Department of Education recommends that each principal completes the tool and that the superintendent or his or her designee compiles the results into a comprehensive self-analysis. In the next suggested step, teams and individual staff members will review the results, thus promoting ongoing conversations about improving their local process.
