Educator Effectiveness & Professional Learning Resources
The educator effectiveness and professional learning team is devoted to providing Tulsa Public Schools educators with timely performance data, relevant high-quality learning experiences, and ongoing support that will empower them to continuously improve their practice. We work hard to ensure that every student receives an unparalleled, transformational, and equitable learning experience.
In 2010, Tulsa Public Schools embarked on a new teacher and leader effectiveness initiative now called the Tulsa Model for Teacher Observation and Evaluation. It is based upon current research and best practices—with authorship and input from Oklahoma's teachers and administrators.
Now in use by 499 districts across Oklahoma, value of the Tulsa Model’s framework and processes depend upon the lessons we learn from teachers and evaluators implementing the processes as well as rigorous, independent research. As such, we welcome your frank and thoughtful input about its effectiveness. We read and listen gratefully to your comments and are actively seeking opportunities to test the usefulness and efficacy of the system’s observation and evaluation practices. Together we can optimize the effectiveness of the Tulsa Model’s TLE Observation and Evaluation System and its ability to positively impact student achievement across Oklahoma.
