A Strategic Plan for Education in Ohio: 2019-2024 (#EachChildOurFuture)

Help shape the future of education in Ohio.

Review and comment on the DRAFT EachChild=OurFuture, Ohio’s five-year strategic plan for education 
or the highlights summary between March 12 – April 13, 2018

The Ohio Department of Education and State Board of Education are pleased to release, for public comment, a working draft of the state’s five-year strategic plan for education: EachChild=OurFuture.

The purpose of the plan is to help each child become successful thanks to the guidance and support of caring adults who are empowered by an effective system. The plan is a tool to inform policy development at the Ohio Statehouse and education practice in Ohio’s schools. More than 150 preK-12 educators, higher education representatives, parents and caregivers, employers, business leaders, philanthropic organizations worked collaboratively over the last six months to develop it.

This plan lays out a vision and goal for education, along with 15 supporting strategies. Ultimately, it seeks to put Ohio on a path to prepare the next generation of innovators and influencers who will go on to change the world.

Proposed vision

EachChild graduates from high school, and each graduate is prepared with the knowledge, skills and disposition to pursue his or her chosen post-high school path and become a lifelong learner who is an engaged, culturally aware and contributing member of society.

Proposed goal

Annually increase the percentage of Ohio’s high school graduates who, within one year of graduation, are:

  • Enrolled and succeeding in a post-high school learning experience, including an adult career-technical education program, an apprenticeship and/or a two-year or four-year college program (15 semester hours); or 
  • Serving in a military branch; or
  • Earning a living wage.

We want to hear from you.

There are two specific ways you can share your thoughts and inform the continued development of this plan:
  1. Review the full working draft or the highlights summary and respond to the companion survey between March 12 – April 13, 2018
  2. Attend one of 13 regional community conversations to discuss your thoughts on the plan directly with the State Superintendent of Public Instruction Paolo DeMaria and Ohio Department of Education staff.

The final plan is set to be released later this spring.
