TLE (Teacher & Leader Effectiveness)

TLE
The state-mandated Teacher & Leader Effectiveness (TLE) system for certified staff appraisals has steadily evolved since it was signed into law in 2010. It requires a five-point rating scale and ties the earning of career teacher status, reductions in force, and mandatory and allowed staff dismissals to TLE ratings.

Latest Implementation Timeline

TLE has had qualitative ratings since 2012-2013. House Bill 2957 ELIMINATES the quantitative ratings which have plagued the process for years.

School Year Ratings based on:
LAST YEAR:
2015-2016
100% Qualitative

State board identified new quantitative measures, but we will NOT be using them. Only Tulsa will use them as part of its ongoing appraisal program.
2016-2017
100% Qualitative

Student performance, including performance on the statewide criterion-referenced tests if available, shall be discussed with the teacher and MAY be one of the considerations for the teacher's rating, but no Value Added Measures, Other Academic Measures, etc. are part of rating
2017-2018 100% Qualitative;
Pilot Year for Individualized Professional Development tied to TLE


Districts will pilot a new mandate that each teacher have an annual professional growth goal tied to TLE and addressed by professional development; no increase in required annual professional development points
 2018-2019
 100% Qualitative;
Full Implementation of Individualized Professional Development tied to TLE

District's Agreement on Appraisals

Qualitative Measures

Bartlesville, like almost all of the districts in the state, adopted the "Tulsa Model" for its Qualitative Ratings for non-administrative certified staff. Administrators receive qualitative ratings under the separate McRel Model.

New Professional Development Mandate

A new requirement that each teacher have an individualized program of professional development, tied to the qualitative TLE component is to be piloted by the state department of education in 2016-2017, piloted at the district level in 2017-2018, and mandated in 2018-2019.
  • Establish an annual professional growth goal developed by teacher in collaboration with evaluator
    • tailored to address a specific area or criteria identified through the qualitative component of the TLE
    • allow teacher to actively engage with learning practices that are evidence-based, researched practices that are correlated with increased student achievement
    • supported by resources that are easily available and supplied by the school district and the State Department of Education
  • Professional development completed shall count toward the total number of point teacher is required to complete; not to be construed as increasing the existing number of required points
  • Individualized programs may include but are not limited to the following learning practices:
    • presenter-led workshops
    • individual or faculty studies of books, scholarly articles and video productions
    • peer observations
    • committee studies to address student achievement issues
    • work related to a specific subject area or areas associated with obtaining an advanced degree or professional certification
    • action research projects designed to improve student achievement
    • participation in local, regional or state initiatives associated with the development or implementation of curriculum standards

Employment Decisions and TLE

TLE ratings already affect a district reduction in force.

Beginning in 2017-2018, TLE qualitative ratings will count toward other employment decisions:
  • career teacher status
  • mandatory dismissals
  • allowed dismissals
