For Program Coordinators

Program Eligibility Requirements for Program Coordinators

To participate in the program as a program coordinator, an individual must be selected by the school or district to serve in this capacity and be assigned the “Coordinator—Resident Educator Role” in the Ohio Educational Directory System (OEDS). 

Program Participation Requirements for Program Coordinators

Program coordinators work with administrators to provide program facilitation and fidelity. Program coordinators plan, implement and report on the Resident Educator Program. Refer to the Resident Educator Program Standards and/or Program Standards Planning Tool for information. Program Coordinators remain current of program expectations for resident educators and mentors. An online module titled Mentor Refresh is available which will update the program coordinator on program requirements and the Mentor Tool Kit.

Year Long Requirements

Support resident educators and mentors with relevant professional development activities in the mentoring years that ensure successful RESA completion during the performance years. As program coordinators plan professional development opportunities, they should be tailored to meet the specific needs of the program and district. Program Coordinators also maintain communication between resident educators, mentors and principals throughout the year.
