Teacher Evaluations

Per SB 216, the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System will change beginning with the 2020-2021 school year. Districts and schools, other than the limited number of districts participating in the voluntary pilot program, will continue to use the current OTES system for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020.

There will be no changes for 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 evaluations.


Teachers and schools receive feedback that helps them ensure high-quality teaching and learning through the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System.

Framework Focuses on Performance and Student Growth

Within the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System, state law indicates that each school district must select either the original or an alternative framework. By using either, districts can monitor educator performance and student growth measures – and use this information to continually improve student achievement. 

The Ohio Teacher Evaluation System for 2015-2016 and Beyond 

State law (Ohio House Bill 64) brought changes to the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System for the 2015-2016 school year and beyond. The legislation modified the alternative framework.
