One Plan

The One Plan is a systemic consolidated district planning tool for all district operations, strategically aligned to funding and resources and focused on improving outcomes for all students. Currently, the CCIP Planning Tool is being used to pilot the One Plan to prepare for the development of the ED STEPS system.  

As part of the Ohio Department of Education’s ED STEPS process, organizations within Ohio are assigned to one of three One Plan cohorts. Each cohort is associated with a starting year. Cohorts 1, 2 and 3 have starting fiscal years of 2022, 2023 and 2024, respectively. In each year, the organizations that are part of that cohort will begin three-year planning to include three school years. This will include identifying needs in a three-year format and writing three-year plans.  

The ED STEPS process includes the identification and consolidation of all the various needs assessments and programmatic planning requirements into a comprehensive planning process. This process has started but is not complete. Therefore, some of the cohorts still may be required to complete other Department planning requirements that reside outside of the first iteration of the One Needs Assessment and One Plan annually until the entire ED STEPS system is completed.
