Regional Education Partnerships Grant
In order to ensure each child is challenged, prepared and empowered, everyone must work together. Collaboration will enable our children to gain the knowledge and skills they need to be successful, start a meaningful career and contribute to the economic vitality of Ohio. Fortunately, many communities have achieved this through Regional Education Partnerships. Regional Education Partnerships are critical collaboratives that bring together the leaders of early learning, primary, and post-secondary education, social services, business, nonprofit and community organizations to strengthen the education pathway for all children in their community.
At the center of the Regional Education Partnership is a backbone organization that acts as a managing partner to coordinate and lead the partnership’s work on a daily basis. This organization may be a new entity or an existing one with deep roots in the community. Functions of backbone include acting as the fiscal agent, fundraising, providing data support, etc. This grant is meant to fund these backbone organizations and pilot the expanding or enhancing of these partnerships.
