Ohio Department of Higher Education Guidance for Educator Preparation Providers

Since 2011, Ohio has taken one of the nation’s most aggressive and comprehensive approaches to fighting opiate addiction and drug overdoses. As part of that initiative, Governor Kasich has asked all members of his cabinet, which includes the Chancellor of Higher Education, to use every resource available to assist in this fight. Recognizing that Ohio’s universities and their teacher preparation programs are invaluable resources for educating students on both prevention and the consequences of opiate and other substance abuse, the Chancellor has made the attached directive, to be implemented for the 2017-2018 academic year.

In order to assist campuses with the implementation of that directive, the Ohio Department of Higher Education has created a brief resource to be used with educator candidates in all licensure areas and at all grade levels. This resource will remain available on our website and will be updated annually.

As with other program requirements, our colleges and universities will be asked to provide evidence of the integration of this content at the point of state-level program approval or renewal. More information about that process will be shared with those campuses that will undergo review during the fall 2017 cycle.

  • This one page document may assist institutions in providing base-level information: 

Substance Abuse Prevention Education (PDF)

  • The 2017 Budget Bill outlined specific requirements for the directive: Sec. 3333.0414. (A) In accordance with Chapter 119. of the Revised Code, the chancellor of higher education shall adopt rules that require education preparation programs approved under section 3333.048 of the Revised Code to include instruction in opioid and other substance abuse prevention. The instruction shall be for all educator and other school personnel preparation programs for all content areas and grade levels.

(B) Instruction shall include all of the following: (1) Information on the magnitude of opioid and other substance abuse; (2) The role educators and other school personnel can play in educating students about the adverse effects of opioid and other substance abuse; (3) Resources available to teach students about the consequences of opioid and substance abuse; (4) Resources available to help fight and treat opioid abuse.

  • Ohio University has developed a module to use for pre-service programs. Please be sure to credit them if you choose to use it.
