Greetings Community School Leaders and Sponsors,
Recently, the Office of Community Schools became of part of the Ohio Department of Education’s Center for Continuous Improvement under Senior Executive Director Dr. Marva K. Jones. By integrating the Office of Community Schools with the Center for Continuous Improvement, the office will be more closely connected to other offices that provide direct technical assistance to community schools, including the Office of Federal Programs and Office of Improvement and Innovation.
We know this is a busy time of year as you are working on the quality practices submission for the Sponsor Evaluation (due by 11:59 pm on May 15th). We have added a Note on 2018-2019 School Mergers on the 2018-2019 Sponsor Evaluation page. The FAQs for 2018-2019 are unchanged.

Our goal is provide these updates every month (every two weeks during busy times).
