The Ohio Military Veteran Educators Program (OhioMVEP) can help those who fall into at least one of the following categories:
- A transitioning active-duty service member seeking a career in education in a classified (non-teaching) position;
- A currently serving reserve component service member seeking a career in education in a classified position;
- A military veteran seeking a career in education in a classified position; or
- A spouse of any of the above, and you are seeking a career in education in a classified or certified role.
To hold a classified role in a school means that you are supporting the education of students, but not as a classroom teacher. Someone who holds a classified position in a school could work as a bus driver, mechanic, health care, IT services, food services, logistics, facility maintenance, etc.
To hold a certified role in a school means that you hold a professional educator license for your job. Classroom teachers, principals, intervention specialists, speech-language pathologists and audiologists are examples of certified positions.
OhioMVEP can assist military spouses find certified positions, but past or present service members seeking a teaching position should instead visit the Ohio Troops to Teachers (TTT) Program to explore that pathway.
To verify your military experience for participation in either OhioMVEP or Ohio TTT, you will need to submit appropriate documentation from your service.
