This presentation will focus on the changes in Ohio law governing the relationship between teachers and public school districts. Specifically the presentation will look at the changes in statutory law related to teacher evaluation, teacher salary schedules, teacher layoff and teacher tenure over the last several years. Finally, the presentation will speculate on the effects of these changes on how teachers relate to their jobs with Ohio school districts. The lecture will be useful for practicing attorneys to understand the evolving legal relationship between teachers and their employing school districts.
