Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction OCSS - Career Opportunities

The Ohio Central School System (OCSS), of the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction (DRC), was chartered through the Ohio State Board of Education on April 9, 1973. OCSS provides comprehensive educational programs and training in thirty adult DRC prisons, provides quality assurance for nineteen Community Based Correctional Facilities and two privately operated facilities in the State of Ohio.

Every Career-Technical teacher must have a GED/HS diploma, and five years experience in their field or a college degree as a required by DOE. The Librarian Two classification must have a Master Degree in Library Science.
