Why did this integration happen? 
This integration creates an easy-to-use, intuitive user experience that lets customers access their applications from anywhere, anytime. The integration also provides a single sign-on location to access both Department applications and other state applications available on OH|ID. Lastly, the portal uses the latest security best practices to safeguard important customer data.

What is OH|ID? 
The OH|ID portal is an identity solution from the InnovateOhio platform. The goal of OH|ID is to create one simple and secure location for all Ohio citizens to access information and conduct business with the state of Ohio. Through OH|ID, Ohio Department of Education users can access Department of Education and other statewide applications in a more secure, streamlined way.
Note: Because OH|ID uniquely encrypts a user’s personal information, every user must have only one OH|ID account. In alignment with the latest security best practices, it is important to note that users should never share their OH|ID credentials.
What happened to my SAFE profile?
The information from your existing SAFE profile has been transferred to your Department of Education profile. The Department of Education profile holds all information and applications related to the Department, such as teacher licensure renewal, scholarship applications, school data-reporting information and professional development training. To access your Department of Education profile, complete the profile setup process outlined in this step-by-step guide.
