The Tulsa Model for Observation and Evaluation
Excellence and High Expectations with a Commitment to All
Tulsa Public Schools’ mission is to provide a quality learning experience to every student, every day, without exception. We know that the quality learning experiences require an effective teacher and leader at every site. In partnership with the Tulsa Classroom Teachers Association, we are committed to closing achievement gaps and to serving all students in their pursuit of educational success.
We are delighted that as of May 2012, 90%+ of school districts in Oklahoma have selected the evidence-based Tulsa Model for Observation and Evaluation to be the best choice for their district.
To assist educators in their evaluation efforts, we’ve developed this portal to house a number of resources and tools to help you improve on your strengths and weaknesses as educators.
There are many ingredients to improving student achievement, but the most important driver is the effective teacher and effective leader. As such, the district must consistently define, measure and support effective teaching and leadership⎯in every classroom and every school.
On behalf of the District, thank you for the critical role you play in helping our students grow and succeed in school and beyond.
Keith Ballard, Ed. D., Superintendent, Tulsa Public Schools
