The Ohio Department of Education has granted permission to ESCs to redesign the Ohio Principal Evaluation System (OPES) Training to make it available virtually.  This virtual, asynchronous option will be available ONLY DURING COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS and is being offered for a reduced fee of $50.   

The Ohio Principal Evaluation System (OPES), adopted December 2008 by the State Board of Education, is designed to be used to assess the performance of Ohio principals. 

OPES was collaboratively developed by Ohio superintendents, school administrators, higher education faculty, and representatives from Ohio's administrator associations. It was designed to be research-based, transparent, fair and adaptable to the specific contexts of Ohio's districts (rural, urban, suburban, large, and small). 

OPES is a standards-based integrated model that is designed to foster the professional growth of principals in knowledge, skills, and practice. The model provides tools for assessing and monitoring leadership performance. It is recommended that there be consistency in the use of the components employed across all principals in the district. 

Location:       Asynchronous, online learning modules.  Participants may complete the learning modules at their own pace within the window.  

Dates:             8/31/20 – 9/16/20 (Registration Deadline: 8/28/20)

Fee:                $50 


Registration:  Registration must be completed through STARS, the Ohio Department of Education’s registration system
