Rule 3301-24-23 | Resident educator license renewal and extension.

 

(A) A resident educator license issued pursuant to section 3319.22 of the Revised Code and rule 3301-24-18 of the Administrative Code may be renewed upon verification that the license holder meets the requirements specified in paragraphs (A)(1) to (A)(4) of this rule.

(1) For a currently expiring resident educator license, renewal shall require completion of three semester hours of coursework related to classroom teaching and/or the area of licensure completed since the issuance of the resident educator license to be renewed.

(2) Renewal of a resident educator license that has expired shall require completion of six semester hours of coursework related to classroom teaching and/or the area of licensure completed since the issuance of the resident educator license to be renewed.

(3) Coursework for the renewal of a resident educator license is to be completed at an accredited institution of higher education, defined in rule 3301-24-01 of the Administrative Code as a degree granting institution accredited at the college level by an accrediting agency that is recognized by the United States secretary of education. All coursework completed for resident educator license renewal should lead to new knowledge in the classroom and be related to student achievement.

(4) The increased amount of coursework associated with renewing an expired license will not apply provided that the license holder completes the currently required amount of coursework and submits a renewal application by October first of the year that the resident educator license expires.

(B) A resident educator license issued pursuant to section 3319.22 of the Revised Code and rule 3301-24-18 of the Administrative Code may be extended on a case-by-case basis, subject to paragraphs (B)(1) to (B)(3) of this rule, to enable the license holder to complete the Ohio teacher residency program established under section 3319.223 of the Revised Code.

(1) If, at the expiration of the resident educator license, a resident educator license holder has completed less than two years of the teacher residency program ("Ohio Resident Educator Program") described in section 3319.223 of the Revised Code and rule 3301-24-04 of the Administrative Code, the license holder is to apply for renewal of a resident educator license rather than applying for a license extension.

(2) If a resident educator license holder has already obtained two one-year license extensions pursuant to section 3319.22 of the Revised Code, and at the conclusion of that license extension still has not completed at least three years of the Ohio resident educator program, then the license holder shall meet requirements for and be issued a renewal of a resident educator license rather than continuing to apply for license extensions.

(3) If a resident educator license holder has already obtained four one-year license extensions pursuant to section 3319.22 of the Revised Code, and at the conclusion of that license extension still has not completed the Ohio resident educator program, then the license holder is to apply for renewal of a resident educator license rather than continuing to apply for license extensions.
