Local Equity Plan

Local Equity Access Planning (LEAP) seeks to ensure that students living at or below the federal poverty line (economically disadvantaged) and students of color (minority students) have equitable access to excellent educators, defined as those teachers and leaders who are effective, experienced, and properly licensed or certified. Districts and schools complete a local equitable access plan using district and building specific data to identify areas of opportunity and growth.

Districts and schools will continue to engage in local equitable access planning during fiscal year 2022 (FY22). Districts and schools in One Plan Cohorts 1 and 3 will continue to be submitted through the Local Equitable Access Plan Program in the Data Submission Forms application in the OH|ID Web Portal. Districts and schools in One Plan Cohort 2 will submit through the One Needs Assessment and One Plan components of the ED STEPS system. Plans must be completed by March 31, 2022.
