Finishing Residency

Requirements for Finishing the local Resident Educator Program

There are two requirements ALL resident educators must fulfill in order to complete residency and become eligible to advance to the five-year professional license. The requirements are:

  1. The resident educator must successfully complete four program years (could include credit for prior teaching experiences)
  2. The resident educator must pass the Resident Educator Summative Assessment
Additional requirements for resident educators who hold the alternative resident educator license include the following:
  • Completion of four years of successful teaching experience under the alternative resident educator license as verified by the employing superintendent. A resident educator cannot use credit for teaching experience outside of the Resident Educator Program to count toward those four years
  • Successful completion of the local four-year Ohio Resident Educator Program
  • The resident educator must pass the OAE Assessment of Professional Knowledge as required
  • The resident educator must complete any other requirements listed as restrictions on their license or on their Alternative Resident Educator Licensure Evaluation such as additional professional education coursework

How to apply to advance to the 5-Year Professional License

Once resident educators meet all the requirements above, they are eligible to apply to advance their license to the 5-Year Professional License. Please follow the guidance on the following licensure website for instructions on how to apply to advance the license.
