Ohio’s Plan to Improve Learning Experiences and Outcomes for Students with Disabilities

Building on Each Child, Our Future and modeling its partnership-based approach, the Ohio Department of Education is convening stakeholders to craft a plan aimed at improving learning experiences and outcomes for students with disabilities. Beginning in January 2019 and wrapping up in December 2019, stakeholders and staff from the Ohio Department of Education will work together to identify a set of recommendations for increasing literacy skills, improving disproportionality, promoting postsecondary success, fostering inclusive leadership and advancing high-quality instructional practices among educators who serve students with disabilities.

Workgroup Focus

Four workgroups have been established to drive development of the plan. Each workgroup is comprised of representatives from schools, disability advocacy organizations and other key partners who have expertise in the education of students with disabilities. Ohio Department of Education staff members are convening and supporting each workgroup. The four workgroup themes have been identified with leadership from the steering committee and input from key stakeholders.

Ultimate Plan

Workgroups propose recommendations to be considered by the steering and internal Ohio Department of Education staff committees. These recommendations will assist in the development of Ohio’s Plan to Improve Learning Experiences and Outcomes for Students with Disabilities, which will be aligned to Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s strategic plan for education.
