A new state requirement from Ohio Senate Bill 252 (Lindsay’s Law), effective March 14, 2017, affects pupil activity (coaching) permit holders. All individuals who coach athletic activities must annually complete a sudden cardiac arrest course approved by the Ohio Department of Health. In early May, the Ohio Department of Health is expected to announce a new course for fulfilling this requirement. As soon as the training is available, we will notify districts of its availability and encourage them to have coaches complete it as soon as possible.
One of the most frequently asked questions the Department receives concerns how long a short-term substitute teacher may teach in a given classroom. For information about this topic, see this new webpage. Find additional information regarding eligibility requirements for short- and long-term substitutes here.
