The Ohio Department of Education today submitted the state’s plan, as approved by the State Board of Education, to the U.S. Department of Education for implementing the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Ohio’s ESSA plan specifies, to the federal government, key aspects of Ohio’s education policy framework and reflects engagement with parents, students, educators, and business and community leaders, as well as the governor and General Assembly.
With the new school year underway across Ohio, it’s more important than ever that our students be in class every day ready to learn. Missing too much school has long-term, negative effects on students, such as lower achievement and graduation rates.
As promised, the Ohio Department of Education this week awarded approximately $44.3 million in new and continuing 21st Century Community Learning Center grants for Fiscal Year 2018.
The Adecco Group, the world's leading provider of workforce solutions, today announced a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ohio Department of Education, becoming a partner with the state in on-the-job training efforts aimed at strengthening Ohio's labor market.
Ohio’s high school students now have 49 more industry-recognized credentials at their fingertips, thanks to the input of companies and industries throughout the state. The Ohio Department of Education added the credentials to guide career-based program development and help students understand and prepare for Ohio’s in-demand jobs and careers. Some students go right into the workforce after earning credentials. For others, the credentials allow students to earn money to help finance college.
