The State Board of Education is a 19-member board that creates policy and makes recommendations for K-12 education in Ohio and 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 SBE has perview over the Ohio Home Education Regulations. This board has direct bearing on the disposition of the regulations.

Due to passage of Am. Sub. HB 48 effective July 2, 2010, which incorporated the provisions of the federal Military and Overseas Voter Empowerment (MOVE) Act into Ohio law, candidate petitions and questions/issues filing deadlines have been changed from 75 days before an election to 90 days before an election.

When 8,700 Ohio Home Educators participated in the Stakeholder Input process in July 2008, we made a difference and, collectively, our voices were heard loud and clear. Here are other ways to re-emphasize the voice capacity in Ohio.

Two Ways of Getting Home Education Compatible Candidates Elected
Working for an endorsed candidate's campaign Moving candidates from an oppose position on home education
1. As a home schooler in Ohio please take a look at the tabulated chart on the left and map on the right to identify the next four State Board of Education district seats up for election in 2010.
2. Find the district number closest in proximity to you. Note that your district may not be up for election in 2010, but you can help another worthy candidate in a district in a neighboring proximity. Presently, we are looking to qualify and endorse candidates, one in the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 8th districts.
3. For those candidates endorsed by the OEF PAC, you can fill out a form on the candidate's page giving you campaign volunteer choices, along with an option to put you in touch with the endorsed candidate. 3. When the pop-up menu comes up with a list of candidates, click each one to view detailed information about each candidate. If no questionnaire is available, this could mean the candidate has not been contacted and no questionnaire results can be posted.
4. When submitted, we will receive the web form and pass it onto the candidate's campaign. We will follow up with you. 4. If the candidate has no questionnaire results, or, is not where you want them on the position of home education, you may use our developed set of questions and interview the candidate yourself; the goal would be to move the candidate to support home education. Then you report any movement on positions to OEF. The moved position will show up on this site.
