Ohio’s Prevention Education Coordinator will have an integral role in supporting the whole child, as envisioned in Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s five-year strategic plan. The Prevention Education Coordinator will be regarded as the Department’s leading expert in policies, practices and partnerships specific to prevention education.

Under the leadership of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine’s office and RecoveryOhio, in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, the Ohio Department of Education implements prevention education strategies and programs designed to empower local communities in their efforts to help children build resiliency and reduce risk factors that contribute to the development of behavioral health conditions.

Serving within the Department’s Office of Integrated Student Supports, the Prevention Education Coordinator will collaborate closely with a dedicated team of education professionals who collectively support Ohio’s schools and districts in areas essential to whole child success. Specifically, those areas include attendance, nutrition, school safety, Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), trauma-informed schools, school-based health care, family and community engagement, and social-emotional learning.

The Prevention Education Coordinator will work under direction of the Director of the Office of Integrated Student Supports. By design, the position will uphold a partnership approach that seeks to drive coherence and maximize impact. This means the Prevention Education Coordinator will collaborate almost daily with cross-state and regional partners and experts to assist schools in providing evidence-informed prevention services for every child, in every grade, in every school.
