We are announcing the Learning in Ohio website to help educators more easily find useful information related to Ohio’s Learning Standards. The new website includes redesigned mathematics and English language arts sections, where users will find resources including suggested learning activities and side-by-side comparisons of the 2010 and revised 2017 standards. The Learning in Ohio website also describes how educators can use four major parts of Ohio’s education system – standards, model curricula, assessments and resources – to help students learn and succeed.
Please take a few minutes to share your thoughts about the website through a short survey. It will remain open through April 5.
Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a restful winter break. Much like the anticipation of spring during this time of year, preschool is an exciting time for young children and the educators who teach them. Throughout the school year, you witness the growing competence of the children you teach. As the children's skills develop, they are able to express and demonstrate an array of emerging skills. As a result of your efforts and their efforts every day, the children in your classroom establish the skills necessary to succeed in school.
Please take time to read and share these news articles in this January edition, which provides additional information to support you in closing out the 2016-2017 school year and to prepare for the 2017-2018 school year.
