Ohio Standards for Professional Development

The Ohio Educator Standards Board updated the Ohio Standards for Professional Development in 2015 to support professional learning for Ohio’s educators. During the extensive revision process, the Standards for Professional Learning developed by the national nonprofit education association Learning Forward served as leading resource. 

By adapting and integrating Learning Forward’s standards into Ohio’s benchmarks, our state joins many others in benefitting from the collective thoughts of numerous experts in the field of professional learning and the collaboration with education associations, organizations and agencies. The new Ohio Standards for Professional Development define the essential elements of a strong professional learning system.
