PRE-SERVICE TEACHER WEBSITE

Ohio is a member of the State Consortium on Educator Effectiveness (SCEE) sponsored by the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO).  A recent focus of the work in Ohio has been to have common messaging on teaching requirements and education initiatives provided to a variety of audiences.  To support that work, the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Board of Regents have collaboratively developed a webpage directed toward pre-service teachers and the faculty who prepare them.  The webpage can be found at the following link:

http://preserviceteacher.education.ohio.gov

We invite both pre-service teachers and faculty to check out the content of the page, visit the site periodically for updates, and use the link provided to subscribe to Tools for Teachers.
