Ohio's new evaluation systems offer the opportunity for more consistent and cohesive approach to professional growth and improvement. However, creating professional growth plans and managing the professional growth process can be cumbersome tasks without the right tools.
That's why the Evaluation Crosswalk is one of the most frequently accessed tools on the OLAC website. The crosswalks are designed to help superintendents, principals, and teachers plan for professional development. The crosswalks align the superintendent, principal, and teacher standards to guiding questions, relevant OLAC modules, and other reputable learning resources that can be used to enrich performance and deepen engagement in school improvement processes.
Each year, OLAC honors one district in Ohio that has gone above and beyond to embrace the OLAC tools and resources and emphasis shared leadership in their district. Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 award. The award will be presented at the 2014 OLAC Action Forum, scheduled for December 2, 2014 at the DoubleTree Columbus - Worthington.
