This blog is written by members of the Ohio Leadership Advisory Council (OLAC), a partnership between the Buckeye Association of School Administrators (BASA) and the Ohio Department of Education (ODE). Please note that the information provided in each blog post represents the individual author's point of view and does not necessarily reflect the position of the OLAC, BASA or ODE.
At OLAC, we talk a lot about teacher-based teams (TBTs). Why? Research shows that developing collective capacity through collaborative teams gets results because "Peers are supporting and pressuring each other to do better."
In fact, we think teacher-based teams are so important, we're dedicating our Action Forum entirely to TBTs. If you haven't heard of the Action Forum, it's a one-day learning event featuring Dr. Brian McNulty from The Leadership and Learning Center, along with presenting TBTs from across the state. To learn more, visit ohioleadership.org/events.
Regardless of whether you're new to TBTs, or looking to take a deeper dive, another great place to start is with our online learning module, Teacher-Based Teams: What Districts Need to Know.
OLAC recently launched two new Webinars facilitated by Brian McNulty: Moving the Work Forward through OPES and Moving the Work Forward through OTES.
Moving the Work Forward through OPES focuses on the Ohio Principal Evaluation System (OPES) and how the standards for principal evaluation relate to the work of teacher based teams (TBTs) and building leadership teams (BLTs).
Moving the Work Forward through OTES focuses on the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) and how work in teacher based teams (TBTs) can satisfy the requirements of the new evaluation system, while increasing the collective ability of staff to increase student achievement.
