From the Superintendent

I am pleased to announce that Ohio’s new $250 million Straight A Fund is open for business!
Ohio educators and administrators—and  their public and private partners—can download the Straight A Fund grant application and supporting documents here and begin telling us their ideas for innovations that will help speed Ohio’s education system farther into the 21st century. 

The Straight A Fund is the largest state program dedicated to promoting teaching and learning innovation in the history of U.S. education, and we think the real winners will be Ohio’s boys and girls.

The grant awards will put power in the hands of local educators and districts to bring about innovative, sustainable change that will better prepare our students for college and workforce success.

From the Superintendent

On Wednesday we will take a major step toward launching Ohio’s new Straight A Fund for education innovation when the governing board for the grant program holds its first meeting. We expect that documents outlining how to apply for the first round of funding will be made available soon after the meeting.

The new state budget created the $250 million fund to support sustainable, innovative, local ideas and programs to help transform and modernize our education system. Straight A Fund grants will provide seed money for ideas that raise student achievement, reduce spending and get more resources to the classroom.
