It is not a law that all teachers are in favor of, but it is the law and it has to be followed.
The Elida School District is hosting administrators, curriculum directors and teachers themselves going through three days of training for the new "Ohio Teacher Evaluation System".
Teachers will now be evaluated on a yearly basis after Governor John Kasich got his education bill passed. O.T.E.S. trainer through the Auglaize County Educational Service Center, Jean Snyder, says to be an evaluator, you need this class to get credentialed.
The new system will focus on specific strengths and opportunities for improvement, it's an effort to keep the majority of teachers who do a good job and weed out the few that aren't cut out to be teachers.
The new system relies on two key components, each weighed at 50 percent, a teacher performance rating based on classroom observations and a rating of student academic growth.
