From the Superintendent

Welcome back to school! I hope you are rested and ready for the 2013-2014 school year—one that I’m convinced will be pivotal for Ohio’s public education system.

Ohio’s New Learning Standards, the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System, the Third Grade Reading Guarantee and a new local report card system that gives schools a deeper look at their performance are all in place, and these should start giving us the traction we need to produce higher-achieving students.

I’ll talk more about each of these programs in future issues of EdConnection, but right now I have some good news for schools and districts that are open to even more innovative thinking. Governor Kasich and the Ohio General Assembly have agreed to set aside $250 million to fund new teaching and learning innovations in Ohio schools over the next two years.
