Extension Options for Resident Educators


The Ohio State Board of Education, in compliance with ORC 3319.22 and based upon recommendations from the Educator Standards Board, recently approved renewal/extension requirements for resident and alternative resident educator licenses.  The options are designed to allow individuals more time to complete the Resident Educator Program. Those who possess resident or alternative resident educator licenses due to expire June 30, 2015, will be able to renew based upon completed years of teacher residency. Individuals who allow their resident or alternative resident educator license to completely expire, will be required to complete a combination of professional development and/or coursework.  Specifics regarding the application process, dates and requirements will be published online by the Ohio Department of Education in the upcoming months.
