Resident Educator Program Update

Resident Educator Program Update

Please be sure all resident educators have SAFE accounts with current email addresses


As a first step for this school year, please be sure that all resident educators, particularly those who will take the Resident Educator Summative Assessment, have a SAFE account – and that all program participants update their email addresses within SAFE. The department and Teachscape will be sending important communications to resident educators electronically using these email addresses. 

A teacher who has never created a SAFE account before will need his or her Ohio driver’s license or a state of Ohio identification number (available from the Bureau of Motor Vehicles). Those who do not have one of these forms of identification should allow a bit more time. They will find instructions within the SAFE account creation menu about the other forms of identification that are accepted for setting up this secure account.

Creating a SAFE account is the first step needed for accessing the Connected Ohio Records for Educators (CORE) system, where teachers should complete their Educator Profile. For assistance with accessing a SAFE account, please contact or call (877) 644-6338.
