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.
Timeline, Overview, and Action Plans have been posted for Year 4 of the Resident Educator Program

The Ohio Teacher Showcase Project highlights ways that Ohio teachers are using technology to support student learning of specific content from Ohio’s New Learning Standards. Teams of Ohio educators have documented their teaching practices through video and lesson materials to provide concrete examples of technology integration. This collection currently includes products from the pilot year of the project that address the New Learning Standards for English language arts.
