Sample Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) Forms
The Ohio Teacher Evaluation forms are intended to provide sample documents that may be used to supplement contract language for teachers being evaluated under OTES. The forms are intended to be used as a guide and can be modified to fit the local association/school district. The forms are grouped by: Initial Forms, Observation Forms, Walkthrough Forms, Portfolio Forms, Remediation Forms, Student Growth Measure Forms, Professional Growth & Improvement Plans,and Final Forms.
A list of the forms below can be used during the OTES process.

This information can be used to help guide the pre-observation conference. It should be for use by the teacher only.
