Resident Educator Program


The Ohio Resident Educator Program began in 2011, and is a comprehensive, four-year initiative to assist beginning teachers with mentoring and professional development as they start their education careers. The Resident Educator Program is designed to improve teacher retention, enhance teacher quality, and result in improved student achievement. The Ohio Resident Educator Program can be envisioned as a professional pathway to continued professional learning, leading educators to more effective practices and excellence in learning. Ohio Revised Code 3319.223 and Ohio Administrative Code 3301-24-04 provide the basis for the Ohio Resident Educator Program and the requirement to successfully pass the Resident Educator Summative Assessment (RESA). When teachers successfully complete program requirements, including the RESA component, they become eligible for a professional teaching
license. Teachers take the RESA in year 3 of the four-year program.

 Mission Statement

The mission for Youngstown City School District’s Induction Program is to provide a supportive learning environment for inexperienced teachers as they transition into highly effective instructors. This program will facilitate on-going professional development to enrich the instructional strategies and knowledge of our staff and enhance the culture of the professional community to generate the best learning environment for our students.
