Resident Educator Program


Ohio House Bill 1, passed in July 2009, mandated a new licensure system for teachers in Ohio, that included a Resident Educator license effective by January 2011.

A four-year Resident Educator program of support and mentoring for new teachers will provide Ohio educators just entering the profession with quality mentoring and guidance essential for a long and flourishing career. Successful completion of the residency program will be required to qualify for a five-year professional educator license. 

Mission Statement

The mission of the Youngstown City School District's Resident Educator Program is to provide a supportive learning environment, in which experienced and inexperienced new teachers understand instructional competencies, increase professional knowledge, and become contributing members of the professional community.
