The department of education shall identify promising practices in Ohio and throughout the country for engaging teachers certified by the national board for professional teaching standards, and lead teachers who meet the criteria adopted by the educator standards board pursuant to section 3319.61 of the Revised Code, in ways that add value beyond their own classrooms. Practices identified by the department as promising may include placing national board certified and lead teachers in key roles in peer review programs; having such teachers serve as coaches, mentors, and trainers for other teachers; or having such teachers develop curricula or instructional integration strategies.
Once the department has identified promising practices, the department shall inform all school districts of the practices by posting such information on the department's world wide web site.
