The Office of Educator Licensure (OEL) is committed to ensuring that Ohio schools and school districts receive the highest quality customer service from ODE. A key element of that customer service plan is providing all superintendents, human resources directors and deans/heads of teacher education with a regional licensure consultant to serve as a “go to” person and direct contact for licensure questions and issues.
The names and contact information for OEL’s regional licensure consultants, as well as their associated regions, appear on this regional map.
OEL is also accessible via the main Licensure telephone number (614-466-3593) and ODE’s general toll free number (877-644-6338), from 8 am to 5 pm Eastern Time Monday through Friday.
Also, the Educator Profile tool on ODE’s website is a convenient and expedient way for school/district staff and individual educators to find the most commonly requested licensure information, including credential history, application status and assignment data, all in one streamlined location. Effective collaboration and communication are essential to ensuring a qualified and credentialed Ohio educator workforce, and OEL appreciates your feedback at any time regarding the services we provide.
