Procedures for School Evaluation. Minimum Standards Implementation Series.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
This document, the second in a series, delineates mandatory procedures for onsite school evaluations as adopted by the Ohio State Board of Education, pursuant to the adoption of the 1983 minimum standards. These procedures give direction to the system of education in Ohio, while allowing flexibility within the standards to establish educational programs that are responsive to local needs. An introduction provides an overview of procedures for conducting evaluations and sources of evidence, and a checklist of written sources of evidence. The second major section identifies questions and sources of evidence addressed during an onsite evaluation. These cover all aspects of the educational program--objectives, curriculum, and student evaluation and promotion criteria; and all types of educational resources--staff, equipment, student records, school services, and administration. Five appendixes provide (1) adopted policies--providing direction to the administrative process, (2) policies and regulations adopted by the board of education, (3) teacher certification dictionary, (4) teacher-pupil ratio, and (5) revised code references.
