Upon successful completion of the training (attendance for all three days is REQUIRED), participants will have access to the online assessment. The three-day state-sponsored OTES training will provide a better understanding of the OTES Framework; allow practice of skills such as scripting, evidence analysis/categorizing and coaching; and allow for sharing of resources and best practices in educator evaluation. Lunch is provided on-site for training participants. Registration is $250.00, payable to the ESC of Central Ohio.
