Ohio Education Association Supports Governor’s Decision on School Closures

[March 12, 2020] The Ohio Education Association (OEA) stands ready to work with state leaders and local school districts to ensure that all students and staff are in a healthy and safe environment, as we grapple with the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. The well-being of our students, educators and staff is our top priority.

“OEA commends Governor DeWine’s decision to close schools beginning next week. Although we have not yet seen the official order, OEA understands the sacrifice this is going to entail for all Ohioans but agrees this is the best action at this time,” said OEA President Scott DiMauro.

The Ohio Education Association represents 122,000 teachers, faculty members and support professionals in Ohio’s public schools, colleges and universities.
