Revisions to Teacher Evaluation System are in Progress
The 2015-2016 state budget bill included revisions to the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System that will be effective in September. The department will be making adjustments to the current evaluation Web pages to reflect the changes and will post answers to frequently asked questions.
Ohio's new system for evaluating principals (Ohio's Principal Evaluation System - OPES) will provide educators with a richer and more detailed view of their performance, with a focus on specific strengths and opportunities for improvement.
State Board of Education Approved Principal Framework
The Ohio Principal Evaluation System (OPES), adopted December 2008 by the State Board of Education, is designed to be used to assess the performance of Ohio principals.
Evaluations have two components, each weighted at 50 percent:
Principal performance rating, determined from:
A professional growth plan
Two 30 minute observations
2. Student academic growth rating
Based on the evaluation, principals receive one of four ratings.
The electronic Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (eTPES) is the required accountability system for conducting and documenting educator evaluations and calculating ratings. Click here for more information.
Educator Evaluation Process Review
The Educator Evaluation Process Review is in effect supporting educator evaluation implementation statewide as required by law. Each Ohio district will participate in the review once every four years. The purpose of the process review is to ensure districts are able to implement the Ohio Educator Evaluation systems with accuracy.
