OTES 1.0 Evaluation Requirements for Teachers Rated Accomplished and Skilled

The COVID-19 ordered school-building closure affects educator evaluation systems. Specifically, this impacts decisions around completion of 2019-2020 educator evaluations and implementation of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) 2.0. Please access additional information here.


For teachers rated accomplished

How frequently a district evaluates teachers who received accomplished ratings in the previous year depends upon several factors. The district may decide to evaluate all teachers annually. Or, the district may elect to evaluate these teachers once every three years per the prior Ohio Revised Code 3319.111. This means that a teacher rated accomplished at the end of a school year will not be formally evaluated again until another two full school years have passed. Please note that certain requirements apply if the district is not conducting formal annual evaluations of these teachers. 

District-selected evaluation schedule Requirements
1) Every three years
  • Professional growth or improvement plan;
  • One observation;
  • One conference;
  • Use the student growth measures process to determine a rating for student growth measures and maintain a rating of average or higher to continue the less frequent evaluation cycle.
2) Annual evaluation

 

  • Professional growth or improvement plan;
  • Two 30-minute formal observations;
  • Walkthroughs (informal observations);
  • Student growth measure rating and performance rating;
  • Final summative rating.

 

For teachers rated skilled

Teachers rated skilled for last year may be evaluated annually or districts may choose to evaluate them every two years under prior  Ohio Revised Code 3319.111. If a district elects to evaluate these teachers every two years, an observation, conference and a student growth measure score will be necessary during the year they are not fully evaluated. The evaluation schedule must be noted in eTPES in the fall of the school year.
