As used in this section, "public or private institution" has the same meaning as in section 3333.93 of the Revised Code.
The state board, in connection with the department of job and family services and public or private institutions, shall develop a methodology for identifying jobs that are in demand by employers operating in this state. The methodology for identifying in-demand jobs shall include an analysis of jobs that are in demand in each region of the state. The director of job and family services shall determine the regions.
The department and the public or private institutions, in consultation with the state board, shall use the methodology to create a list of such in-demand jobs in the state and a list of such in-demand jobs in each region of the state. The department shall publish the lists on the web site of the department. The department and public or private institutions shall periodically update the lists to reflect evolving workforce demands in this state and its regions.
Local boards, workforce development agencies, and other providers of workforce training shall use the lists of in-demand jobs to cultivate and prioritize workforce development activities that correspond to the employment needs of employers operating in this state and in each of its regions and to assist individuals in maximizing their employment opportunities.
