TLE Logo

TLE oversees Oklahoma’s teacher/leader evaluation system that is used to inform instruction, create professional development opportunities, and promote the continuous improvement of the practice and art of teaching and leading. TLE and individualized professional development 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 Report 2019-2020

TLE Qualitative Report data collection requirements have been waived for the 2019-2020 school year due to the current Covid-19 state of emergency.  With the waiver of the report, sites/districts will not complete the TLE Qualitative Report for the 2019-2020 school year.
