Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration Partners with Netchemia’s TalentEd Perform
Netchemia’s cloud-based K-12 evaluation software automates implementation and management of Oklahoma’s new Teacher and Leader Evaluation system for school districts
PRAIRIE VILLAGE, Kan. — As Oklahoma school districts prepare for full implementation of the Teacher and Leader Evaluation (TLE) system in time for the 2013-2014 school year, the Cooperative Council for Oklahoma School Administration (CCOSA) has partnered with K-12 cloud software developer Netchemia LLC to offer TalentEd Perform TLE, an affordable, TLE-ready web-based model that makes completing evaluations easier.
CCOSA, an Oklahoma City-based non-profit professional association for Oklahoma educators, recognized the need to help districts implement the state’s new framework in an effective, efficient and paperless way.
By endorsing Netchemia’s TalentEd Perform TLE, CCOSA offers districts of any size inexpensive and accessible anywhere software that can seamlessly automate their evaluation processes.
More than 50 Oklahoma districts – some with fewer than 200 students – already use TalentEd Perform, including one of the state’s largest and leading districts in Tulsa Public Schools.
“The software, which is easily accessible online by all users, offers numerous advantages over other technology options,” said CCOSA executive director Steven Crawford in a letter to the organization’s members.
Districts using TalentEd Perform are able to:
• Manage and automate all TLE teacher and classified employee evaluations with one system.
• Integrate their current human resource management systems (HRMS), eliminating redundant tasks.
• Access easy-to-use and filter reporting tools and analytics on demand.
• Use tablets and mobile devices to complete evaluation steps, even on the spot.
“Oklahoma districts rely on CCOSA’s leadership, so we’re excited about a partnership which will ultimately foster meaningful collaboration between teachers and principals with the ultimate goal of improving student achievement,” said Nick De Buyl, Director of Sales for Netchemia.
