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 and PL Focus Updates


 

Attaining Career Status

 

Although TLE data collection and reporting were waived in March 2020, the school year is to be included as one of the four years of probationary status for educators. In order for an educator to attain career status, regulations set in HB2957 (2016) must be met. In accordance with HB2957 (2016), a career teacher who was employed for the first time in one school district under a written continuing or temporary teaching contract beginning in 2017-2018 or thereafter:

 

a.) has completed three consecutive complete school years in one district and has achieved a district evaluation score of superior for two of the three school years,  

 

b.) has completed four consecutive complete school years in one district and achieved at least an effective district evaluation score on the TLE for the last two years of the four year period, or

 

c.) has completed four or more consecutive complete school years in one district and has not met the requirements above, only if the principal of the school of which the teacher is employed submits a petition to the district superintendent requesting that the teacher be granted career status, the superintendent agrees with the petition and the local board of education approves the petition. The petition shall specify the facts supporting the granting of career status to the educator. These documents should be retained as part of the educator's personnel file.
