Ohio Department of Education is pleased to announce the release of the initial ED STEPS product starting February 1st, 2022.  This release, branded One Plan initial release, replaces the CCIP Planning Tool, incorporates many end-user requests for enhanced functionality, and builds the foundation for future capabilities.  This initial release is a starting point for ED STEPS One Plan and the team has many planned improvements to be made in the coming months based on collaborative feedback from our uses.  That said, the development team has worked diligently to begin involving our users in some of the high-value functionality with the deploy of the initial offering.
