Preschool and school age child care programs that the Ohio Department of Education oversees will use a new program licensing and quality rating system beginning on Monday, Jan. 30.
The new system allows external users to control and maintain who in their organization has access. To be ready for the Jan. 30 launch, please set up roles now for those in your district or school who work with these programs. Click here for instructions.
For general questions regarding the new system or setting OEDS roles, please contact the Office of Early Learning and School Readiness at (614) 752-1151 or or email OELSR.email@example.com for preschool or SACC licensing role questions or SUTQ@education.ohio.gov for Step Up To Quality role questions.
