The TLE rubric for regular classroom teachers has changed for 2014-2015; you will find the new rubric and a comparison with the old one on the district website's TLE page at www.bps-ok.org/faculty/tle/
The BEA and the district administration have worked together to update the district's overview of the TLE appraisal system, summarizing issues for this year:
Although your TLE rating for 2014-2015 will again be entirely based on the qualitative domains in the Tulsa model, how your students perform in 2014-2015 will be 50% of your TLE rating in 2015-2016.
During bargaining this year we maintained the requirement that only district and site administrators who have received state TLE certification may conduct appraisals.
At the post-observation conferences with your appraiser you need to be prepared to discuss each dimension and be prepared to offer evidence that you are at a given level in the rubric. The conference is a professional dialogue to determine the most appropriate rating. Observation ratings AND final evaluation ratings CAN be modified during the post-observation conferences if the person being appraised provides evidence which convinces the appraiser to modify his or her initial ratings. It is a good idea to upload to OKTLE well in advance any evidence you can provide on your performance on a given dimension on the rubric.
