Student Wellness and Success
Each Child, Our Future, Ohio’s strategic plan for education, seeks to ensure each student is challenged, prepared and empowered for his or her future by way of an excellent prekindergarten-grade 12 education. Ohio’s schools can succeed by meeting the needs of the whole child – the physical, social, emotional and intellectual aspects of the child’s well-being.
With House Bill 166, passed in July 2019, Ohio invested $675 million to help districts and schools support their students’ academic achievement through mental health counseling, wraparound services, mentoring and after-school programs. School districts will work with local organizations to determine community needs and resources, so they can use the state dollars to make the greatest impact on students’ lives. The Ohio Department of Education will use the funds to help districts plan and launch these student wellness initiatives.
The Department will update this webpage as it develops new guidance and resources to help districts and their community partners plan and implement student health and wellness programs. Watch for more information soon.
By knocking down barriers to school success, we can give all our students brighter futures.
