Revised Ohio Standards for Principals open for public comment

2/20/2018

The Ohio Department of Education, with guidance from an advisory workgroup of principals, superintendents and others, revised the Ohio Standards for Principals to better reflect the roles and responsibilities of today’s building leaders. The Department posted a draft of the standards and invites educator and public review and comment from Feb. 16 through March 2.
 
The Department will post a summary of this feedback later in March and will consider all comments to determine if the posted draft standards should be further revised.
 
The Department assembled the Ohio Standards for Principals workgroup in fall 2017. Members represent elementary, middle and high schools, district superintendents, higher education faculties, educator professional organizations and the Ohio Department of Education. The group’s goal was to update the standards while ensuring they remain flexible enough to apply to the many roles and circumstances of Ohio’s building principals. In addition to the workgroup’s efforts, the draft revised Ohio Standards for Principals reflect research from around the country and input from national experts.
