Educator Conduct

Rapback update

Recently, the Department found a small percentage of licensed educators who are not enrolled in the Bureau of Criminal Investigation’s Rapback system. The Department is actively engaged in rectifying the issue and is working with the State Board to seek legislative change. For more information please visit our Rapback Service webpage and our Rapback FAQ webpage.


The Office for Professional Conduct administers the ethical standards for educators. The office investigates allegations involving criminal or ethical violations to ensure that all Ohio students receive instruction from educators committed to a safe, supportive and healthy school community. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. EST.
