Supporting 100,000 educators in refining their craft

NIET has supported the Ohio Department of Education for multiple years, beginning with the development of the statewide training portal for evaluators of classroom teachers. NIET created a video library with classroom lessons scored on the Ohio teacher evaluation rubric for use in training, and Ohio evaluators complete their certification through the portal. Over 11,000 evaluators have been certified, impacting over 100,000 educators across the state.

In addition, NIET has provided a series of trainings for principals in Ohio to deepen their understanding of the elements of strong instruction, and support their ability to provide feedback for improvement when they coach teachers following the classroom observation.
