TLE oversees Oklahoma’s teacher/leader evaluation system that is used to inform instruction, create professional development opportunities, and continuous improvement of the practice and art of teaching and leading. TLE and PD will help usher in an innovative, educator-centered path to professional growth. This fresh new component is the Professional Learning Focus – PL Focus for short. The old “sit and get” method is gone, and with the PL Focus, teachers now have a front-row seat to their own professional learning and can tailor it to their needs and, more importantly, their students’ needs.
TLE Qualitative Reporting Window for the 2017-2018 school year will be open from June 6th - July 6th. All qualitative reports must be submitted no later than July 6, 2018.
