From: Ohio Department of Education

Hello Sam,

I'm one of the data managers for staff data at the Ohio Department of Education, and I'll be happy to help you get what you need. The most expedient way for you to obtain these publicly available data is to use the DataOhio Portal, though you'll need to get an OH|ID account and request access to the secure dataset.

We can provide the following through the portal:
- first name
- last name
- sex
- race
- year of birth
- Assigned School
- salary (if available)

Furthermore, it is safe to assume that the first year an educator appears in the dataset is the first year that they were working. If you need specificity beyond what is publicly available, we can log a specific data request, though that will take more time to fulfill.

Since you need data at the individual level, the quickest way to get that is to request the individual line-level secure dataset through the same portal, which you can do here:
Education Employee Positions and Demographics Secure Dataset:

You should be aware that secure dataset file is quite large (millions of rows, nearly 1GB), as it contains everyone's records from all districts since 2006. You would need to do the filtering on your end, but approval typically takes place quickly.

Feel free to reach back out if you have questions. I'll keep my eyes open for your dataset access request.

Have a pleasant day,
