Operation Graduation 2.0 Design Labs: New events scheduled


Ohio’s new graduation requirements will affect every Ohio high school. Personalized graduation plans that emphasize career readiness are becoming essential to earning a high school diploma in Ohio. Following the release of final guidance, and to support schools as they create policies and graduation plans for at-risk students, three more Operation Graduation 2.0 Design Labs are planned.
EnvisionEdPlus is partnering with school districts and educational service centers to bring these meetings to regions across the state. During the Practical Opportunities for Progress sessions, participants will meet expert local facilitators and statewide education partners who will guide teams and help with implementation. Lab participants will:

  • Clarify final guidance on graduation requirements, diploma seals and at-risk policy and graduation plan expectations;
  • Discuss all graduation options for the classes of 2021, 2022, 2023 and beyond;
  • Discover ways to develop or expand career and college pathways, industry credentials and apprenticeships in traditional high school settings that are essential for successful implementation; and
  • Complete implementation plans that build on local strengths and create new opportunities for preparing each student for career and college success. 
All labs will follow the same agenda, but times and costs may vary. Choose the date or location that best meets your school’s needs:
  • May 11, Virtual Session – Free session sponsored by the Ohio STEM Learning Network in partnership with the Educational Service Center of the Western Reserve;
  • Aug. 4, Marion – Hosted by Marion City Schools; and
  • Date To Be Determined, Wilmington – Hosted by Southern Ohio Educational Service Center.
