Register now to take part in regional meetings for Ohio’s strategic plan

3/26/2018

The Department has scheduled regional stakeholder meetings to gather input on Ohio’s draft strategic education plan, which will create a unified system that results in success for each student. The plan will be Ohio’s roadmap for innovative approaches to meeting the state’s major education challenges. The plan identifies a clear, statewide goal for preK-12 education, along with strategies and tactics that explain how the goal will be achieved.
 
During the last six months, the State Board of Education and the Ohio Department of Education have engaged more than 150 partners from preK-12, higher education, business, philanthropy, community and the state legislature to craft a comprehensive strategic plan for education. This is the first plan Ohio has prepared in more than a decade.
 
Philanthropy Ohio, in partnership with the State Board, is hosting the regional stakeholder meetings to review the plan and receive targeted feedback that will inform the final draft of the plan. The meetings are an opportunity to gather valuable input from various perspectives, including local educators, funders, parents, students and community members. Each meeting will include an introduction from State Superintendent Paolo DeMaria, a brief overview of the draft plan and group discussions about specific provisions and options.
