           Alternative Licensure in Ohio

  The alternative educator license is a non-traditional
  method for developing qualified teachers. It permits
 “qualified baccalaureate degree-holders to transition
    to careers as classroom teachers." This allows
  students, schools and communities to benefit from
 their content-related knowledge and their experience
in other work settings as well as from their maturity. It
also meets many of the urgent and long-term staffing
      needs of schools in teacher shortage areas.
