On April 6, 2023, the Ohio Department of Education (“ODE”) will issue a nonrenewable, two-year temporary educator license to an individual with an expired professional teacher’s certificate or a professional educator license pursuant to H.B. 554.
To qualify, an individual cannot have any disciplinary sanctions on the expired certificate or license. A temporary license is valid for teaching in the same subject areas and grades as the expired certificate or license, including any endorsements to that expired certificate or license. Prior to providing instruction, a temporary license holder must complete any training required by the employing school district or school.
