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.
The TLE Qualitative Report for the 2018-2019 school year is due June 7, 2019.  PL Focus information is required this year.  All certified educators except for the district superintendent will have a PL Focus regardless of evaluation exemption status.
