Understanding OTES 2.0; What You Need to Know to Plan to Implement

July 21, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

OFT and OEA are partnering to provide training designed to help teachers understand the changes to evaluation when OTES 2.0 is implemented. We recommend collaborative conversations between the administration and the union in setting up local parameters in the OTES 2.0 process. It is important that teachers are provided training to fully understand OTES 2.0. This training is delivered at no cost.

Originally intended to be offered as face to face training at regional locations, the new normal dictated by COVID-19 has required that the sessions be converted to virtual delivery. Content will be delivered by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and mimics the content being offered at sessions provided for administrators, ESCs, and OTES 2.0 evaluators. We wanted to assure there is a consistent message and everyone is on the same page as they work to flesh out their local process.

ODE trainers are Cathryn Everidge-Shaw, Apryl Ealy, Tom Rounds, and Jill Grubb.

Please plan to join us at one of these two sessions to be sure we are all prepared for a smooth rollout of OTES 2.0 as you locally implement your programs. We can take advantage of having the 2020-2021 school year to thoughtfully create our local systems.

We are offering two opportunities to attend the training: July 21 and August 4.
Sessions will run from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Registration for the July 21 session will end on July 18
