Computer Science Licensure Reimbursement

Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s strategic plan for education, recognizes the importance of providing supports and professional learning so teachers can deliver excellent instruction every day. To increase the number of qualified educators who can effectively teach computer science, House Bill 166 of the 133rd General Assembly includes a provision to reimburse teachers for the costs to obtain licenses to teach computer science. This provision includes $1.5 million in support for the next two years (FY 2020 and 2021). This allows currently licensed teachers to apply for reimbursement of the coursework and content testing fees necessary to obtain a supplemental license to teach computer science.
