Ohio Administrative Code (OAC) Rule Comments

The Ohio Department of Education staff drafts and edits administrative rules, which have not yet been formally proposed for adoption by the State Board of Education or the state superintendent. During the initial drafting of rules, every effort is made to solicit input from affected organizations and individuals. Upon posting the draft rules, the Department sends out e-notification alerts to interested parties. Rules may be posted through the lieutenant governor’s Common Sense Initiative office, if applicable. For rules that go through the Common Sense Initiative process, the review concludes with a formal report clearing the way for the Department to file the rules with the Joint Commission on Agency Rule Review or recommend further changes. If the Common Sense Initiative process does not apply, the rules are filed with the Joint Commission on Agency Rule Review.

The rule for review is listed below:

OAC 3301-24-05  Licensure
  •  OAC 3301-24-05 Licensure
Changes to Ohio Administrative Code 3301-24-05, Licensure, are being made to this rule for several reasons. First, Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 3319.22, as amended by Senate Bill 216, changed the grade bands for teacher licensure. Second, some of the requirements set forth in the rule are standard components of the preparation program for the credential, so listing the requirement in the rule is unnecessary. Third, credentials for which there are no institutions of higher education offering preparation programs have been removed. Finally, other changes have been made to provide clarity, to remove redundant language, and to align with current policies and practices.
