Teachers at State Agencies

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.

Due to changes in Ohio Revised Code, the State Board of Education has approved a revised Evaluation Framework for teachers employed by the Ohio State School for the Blind, the Ohio State School for the Deaf and the Ohio Department of Youth Services (collectively referred to as “state agencies”). The policy conforms with the framework for evaluation of all Ohio teachers prescribed by state law.

For purposes of this framework, the definition of a teacher is any person who is employed under a teacher license issued under the Ohio Revised Code (ORC) Chapter 3319, or under a professional or permanent teacher’s certificate issued under former ORC 3319.222, and who spends at least 50 percent of the time employed providing student instruction. Policies adopted pursuant to this framework do not apply to substitute teachers or instructors of adult education.
