Teacher Supply and Demand Report

The Ohio Department of Education has worked with the Ohio Education Research Center (OERC) to develop an analysis of the supply and demand for kindergarten through grade 12 teachers in Ohio. This study identifies where there are shortages (and excesses) of teachers across locations, grade levels and subjects taught (including specialized classes i.e. vocational or special education). This study also forecasts future changes to the supply and demand for Ohio teachers. This forecast can inform policy makers, teacher preparation programs, school districts and educational service centers in forming strategic plans as they relate to teacher supply and demand.

Please remember to register for student growth measures training related to the electronic Teacher and Principal Evaluation System (eTPES)

The department highly encourages superintendents, principals and other administrators who have responsibility for making decisions associated with student growth measures to register for one of the essential half-day training sessions that educational service center staff are conducting now through April. The training will help administrators meet milestones on the evaluation timeline for the next few months, especially the legal requirements for completing teacher evaluations by May 1 and preparing written reports of the evaluations by May 10.
