Licensure update for family and consumer sciences teachers
The Ohio Department of Education is working to address a growing concern about the declining number of licensed family and consumer sciences teachers in Ohio. To increase the number of educators available to teach these courses, the Office of Career-Technical Education is now allowing those holding these licensure codes from the fields of Hospitality and Tourism and Education and Training to teach family and consumer science courses. This change will be effective in the 2017-2018 school year. For more information about this process, contact Kevin Williams.
