    Students in the class of 2020 may use a work or community service experience to satisfy a component of Ohio’s graduation requirements. For the class of 2020, state law directed the Ohio Department of Education to develop guidance for districts or schools to approve and verify students’ work or community service experiences, so these experiences can satisfy graduation requirements. 

    The Class of 2020 Work or Community Service Experience guidance document now is available here.

    The Department also has developed this Work or Community Service Toolkit that districts and schools can use to support implementation of this graduation option. The toolkit offers answers to frequently asked questions.
    Direct additional questions to
    Capstone project guidance for the class of 2020 and supporting materials will be available by May 31.

    Beginning July 1, 2019, ODE will issue a new substitute teaching license and will no longer issue or renew short- or long-term substitute licenses. After June 30, only one type of substitute license will be issued. Applicants will select teaching fields based on the post secondary degrees they hold. Please see the Substitute License webpage for more information and requirements related to the new substitute teaching license.

    According to ODE, the new career-technical workforce development substitute license will follow the same rules as the other new substitute licenses but are not valid for subbing in academic areas unless the individual also holds a bachelor’s degree.  It should also be noted that substitute licenses are not considered proper certification for the purposes of CTE course approval.

    Related question that is posted on the ODE website:

    Can a career-technical workforce development substitute teacher teach any classes outside of his or her teaching field for an unlimited number of days?

    If the license holder has education and experience in the career-technical workforce development area directly related to the subject of the class the license holder will teach, the individual can teach for an unlimited number of days.

    However, if the license holder does not have education and experience in the career-technical workforce development area the license holder will teach, the individual may teach for one full semester, subject to the approval of the employing school district board of education. A district superintendent can ask the board to approve one or more additional, semester-long periods.

    SB 89 also addresses career-tech substitute teaching licenses, among other related concerns.  It is currently in the legislative process.  Read more about SB 89 here.

    Teacher Appreciation Week is  May 6-10, and we want to help recognize Ohio’s amazing teachers by sharing your #OhioLovesTeachers celebrations! We want to hear from everyone — school and district leaders, parents, family members, fellow teachers, community members and, of course, students!
    Write about your appreciation on this shout-out banner and take a photo with that special teacher who inspires and challenges you; post a short video explaining why that teacher is so great; or share your own creative ideas to express gratitude.
    Want to know how to use #OhioLovesTeachers?
    The #OhioLovesTeachers campaign on Twitter and Instagram brings our educators to center stage and shines a spotlight on their work and the meaningful ways they are changing lives. To take part, simply share a picture with your story using #OhioLovesTeachers and tag @OHEducation. The Ohio Department of Education will select and reshare many of these images and stories with its statewide network of social media followers.
    Be sure to include the teacher’s or group of teachers’ names, district and school names, subjects taught and any social media handles. Share the reason this teacher or group of teachers is an example of why #OhioLovesTeachers. You can include these items in your posts:

    •     Photos and videos from the classroom;
    •     Video testimonials;
    •     Links to district write-ups (such as blogs, announcements and newsletters);
    •     News articles from your local media; and
    •     Anything else that helps tell the story of your special teacher or group of teachers.

    #OhioLovesTeachers is the perfect opportunity to recognize educators whose passion for teaching has no limits. Ohio has a lot to love about its teachers. We are excited to share your stories about our state’s incredible educators this week and year-round!
