Teachers at State Agencies

The temporary changes in House Bill 197, House Bill 164 and House Bill 404 of the 133rd General Assembly impact teacher, principal and school counselor evaluations. These changes, made in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, grant districts flexibility around educator evaluations for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 school years.

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.
