Ohio Teacher Leadership Framework

Ohio Teacher Leadership Framework

The 2017 Ohio Teacher Leadership Framework includes five broad components of teacher leadership. The five components address the essential aspects of teacher leadership that are research-based, stakeholder-driven and grounded in state and national standards for teachers. Teacher leaders often engage in the aspects of these components simultaneously. No component is more important than another since teacher leadership varies from context to context. Schools and districts can use the five teacher leadership components as they develop and expand a culture that supports teacher leadership in their local contexts. These components also can drive the preparation and ongoing development of teacher leaders and principals.

The Ohio Teacher Leadership Framework aligns with various educator standards:  2005 Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession (OSTP), 2015 Ohio Standards for Professional Development (OSPD), and Teacher Leader Model Standards (TLMS).  The framework document identifies the specific standards and indicator alignment for each individual teacher leadership component. Using this framework, the Ohio Teacher Leadership Toolkit was designed to support schools, districts and educators in teacher leadership initiatives.
