10.23.15 - Lake Erie Caucus To Consider Clean Water Bond Issue

 
COLUMBUS -

12.16.13 - Senate Bill 229 Improves Ohio's Teacher Evaluation System

 

Ohio’s intensive teacher evaluation system just started this school year, so at first it seemed that Senate Bill 229, which offers a different way of evaluating teachers, would be a recipe for confusion. The bill recently rolled through the Senate and it's now awaiting action in the Ohio House.

But it’s clear the bill gives school districts more options on how to do teacher evaluations. That ought to make it easier for districts to comply. The House should pass this bill.
