Ohio’s Straight A Fund is gearing up for the second round, and I want to give you information on dates and materials that can help you if your district plans to apply for a Straight A Grant. I also will provide some information on webinars that will give you great guidance.

From the Superintendent

I believe that one of the most promising opportunities in education right now is the potential to help our girls and boys be better connected to the world of knowledge through technology. When I was a district superintendent, I would have loved to see my students and teachers enjoy the almost limitless access to information and the highly interactive learning technologies that have become available in just the last few years.
