State Board of Education

The State Board of Education is made up of 19 members - 11 who are elected and eight who are appointed by the governor. The chairs of the education committees of the Ohio House of Representatives and Ohio Senate serve as non-voting ex-officio members. The Superintendent of Public Instruction serves as secretary of the State Board of Education.

The State Board of Education’s vision is for all Ohio students to graduate from the PK-12 education system with the knowledge, skills and behaviors necessary to successfully continue their education and/or be workforce ready and successfully participate in the global economy as productive citizens. Ultimately, all students will graduate well prepared for success.


State Board of Education Meetings

State Board of Education meetings normally occur on the second Monday and Tuesday of each month.

Ohio Sunshine Laws require that these meetings be open to the public, except executive session. Members of the public have opportunities to address the Board during the Chapter 119 hearing on Monday afternoon, and during the business meeting on Tuesday.

Board schedules, agendas, minutes and board briefs are published regularly. Meetings are live streamed by the Ohio Channel. Archived video is also available online via the Ohio Channel.
