Changes to Ohio Teacher Evaluation System for 2014-2015


House Bill 362 passed the Ohio legislature on June 3 bringing changes to the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System for the 2014-2015 school year and beyond.

The first change will allow less frequent evaluation of teachers receiving skilled and accomplished ratings beginning next year, while still providing them with feedback on their work.

The second change will allow districts a choice between a new alternative teacher evaluation structure and the current (original) structure. The alternative structure includes an additional measure to student growth and observation in a teacher’s evaluation as 15 percent of the evaluation.

The fact sheet below provides more details on House Bill 362. Additional information will appear on these Web pages in the near future.
