Revised Ohio Standards for Principals now posted

7/23/2018

The State Board of Education approved the revised Ohio Standards for Principals on July 10. The Ohio Department of Education revised and updated the standards according to recommendations from a network of advisors it had asked to assess the state of principalship in Ohio and map a route for improving principal effectiveness. Revising the prior Ohio Standards for Principals to better reflect responsibilities and define expectations for today’s principals has been an ongoing effort involving a writing team, public comment gathering and reviews by Ohio stakeholder and professional organizations.
 
The 2018 Ohio Standards for Principals aim to address the needs of building principals and the students they serve by emphasizing what is known about the skills and practices of effective school leaders. The 2018 standards display a greater focus on equity and meaningful engagement of families and the community. The revised standards also address additional areas of impact, such as fostering a supportive school community that promotes growth and well-being for students and staff.
