Please be sure all resident educators have SAFE accounts with current email addresses

As a first step for this school year, please be sure that all resident educators, particularly those who will take the Resident Educator Summative Assessment, have a SAFE account – and that all program participants update their email addresses within SAFE. The department and Teachscape will be sending important communications to resident educators electronically using these email addresses.

Please register resident educators early; registration begins Sept. 1

Program coordinators must register each resident educator in CORE each year he or she participates in the program. The Ohio Department of Education will post directions for registration on the CORE Reporting Requirements section of the website by Sept.1, the first day of the registration period that closes Nov. 15. So that first-time candidates for the Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA) can gain access to the RESA system as early as possible, the department strongly encourages program coordinators to register eligible resident educators by Oct. 8.

RESA 2013-2014 scoring is ongoing; reports due in December

Assessors are busy scoring all assessment submissions from the many resident educators who participated in last year’s RESA. The score reports will arrive in December. At that time, candidates will receive an email from Teachscape with instructions on how to retrieve their final scores from a secure website. Resident educators who do not pass all assessment tasks may resubmit any task that does not receive a passing score, as long as the program coordinator registered the candidate in the CORE system as a candidate for this program year. Resident educators should notify program coordinators if they must retake any portion as soon as they receive their score reports.

Adding video authorization now to parent forms will save time

At the start of each school year, most school districts ask parents to complete and sign a form regarding emergency contacts, use of directory information and permission for use of student photographs for education purposes. Please consider adding language and a signature block to this form for parents to authorize video recordings of their children, so that teachers can use video of classroom instruction to improve their performance. See sample language inside.
