The Ohio State University at Lima


Info sessions offered for teachers interested in K-12 Mild/Moderate Special Ed Licensure

March 2, 2020

Working teachers already have schedules packed with many things beyond their in-class activities like lesson plan prep, grading and extracurricular activities. When that working teacher wants to add a credential that will improve the classroom experience for a diverse group of learners, it is nearly impossible to find the time.

The education program at The Ohio State University at Lima now offers a program that can meet the professional development needs of current teachers. The K-12 Mild/Moderate Special Education Licensure is designed around the working education professional’s schedule and will require minimal amount of time on campus while retaining the rigor of an Ohio State program.

Ohio State Lima will offer three information sessions about the K-12 Mild/Moderate Special Education Licensure program in March and April 2020. Each session will be held from 4-5 p.m. in the Student Services Center. The dates are March 23, April 7 and April 22. Interested teachers can attend in person or via Zoom. RSVP at http://go.osu.edu/rsvpinfosession.

The licensure program will fill a need in west central Ohio for more intervention specialists, positions that often go unfilled each year. The program can also prepare all teachers to better serve their students.

The K-12 Mild/Moderate Special Education Licensure program is open to students with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university and a current state of Ohio teaching certification or license. Exchange of service schools may qualify for discounted rates.

Members of the Ohio State Lima education team are available to discuss the K-12 Mild/Moderate Special Education Licensure at staff and in-service meetings. Contact Leah Herner-Patnode at herner-patnode.1@osu.edu.
