The Ohio Resident Educator Program began in 2011 as a four year residency program for new teachers on the pathway to their professional license. Ohio Revised Code 3319.223 and Ohio Administrative Code 3301-24-04 provide the basis for the Ohio Resident Educator Program.
In Marion City Schools, the Resident Educator Program is as follows:
Year 1: 1-1 Mentorship
Year 2: Cohort
Year 3: Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA)
Year 4: Leadership Exploration
Teachers are eligible for their professional license after successful completion of the RESA along with other program requirements.
