The Ohio Resident Educator Program began in 2011 and has evolved to a comprehensive, multi-year induction program. Successful completion of the program and the Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA) results in professional licensure.
OEA played a key role in changing Ohio public education through House Bill 1 (HB 1) – the fiscal 2010-2011 state budget. A fair formula replaces Ohio’s unfair and inadequate school funding system. HB 1 has also resulted in many changes to licensure that particularly effect early career teachers.
Standards for Licensure and Employment of Individuals with Criminal Convictions
Licensure and employment of individuals in the teaching profession is governed by various statutes in the Ohio Revised Code and rules in the Ohio Administrative Code. The following information and screening tool is designed to assist in applying the requirements regarding licensure and employment of individuals in the teaching profession.
Information about educator licensure, including renewal requirements and applications, background check requirements and the certification and licensure dictionary can be found on the Ohio Department of Education Educator Licensure page.
