Ohio includes all students, including those with disabilities, in state tests, and their results are included in state accountability. All children matter, and Ohio has a responsibility to make sure that all children learn and grow in our classrooms.

This information explains the current state of assessment and support for Ohio’s students.

Special education paraprofessionals (SPED parapros) help students in nearly all Ohio districts. In fact, across the nation SPED parapros outnumber special education teachers by a factor of 2 to 1. They are a large proportion of the special education workforce, but there has been no systematic assessment of districts’ needs in organizing their work.

For this reason the Ohio Partnership for Excellence in Paraprofessional Preparation (OPEPP) is conducting the first statewide survey to describe the role, function, and training needs of parapros in Ohio from the district perspective. Please help OPEPP by reporting your district’s information and experience on the survey. There are about 25 questions and answering them should take about 15 minutes.

A young person you know could be experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis. You can help them. You are more likely to encounter someone — friend, family member, student, neighbor, or member of the community — in an emotional or mental crisis than someone having a heart attack. Youth Mental Health First Aid teaches a 5-step action plan to offer initial help to young people showing signs of a mental illness or in a crisis, and connect them with the appropriate professional, peer, social, or self help care. Anyone can take the 8-hour Youth Mental Health First Aid course, but it is ideally designed for adults who work with young people, ages 12-18 — teachers, coaches, leaders of faith communities, social workers, and other caring citizens.

Recruitment of Districts for Ohio Leadership for Inclusion, Implementation and Instructional Improvement (OLi4) Project

OLi4 is a collaborative effort through the University of Dayton supported with funding from the Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children. Partners include ODE-OEC, Ohio's state support teams (SSTs), the Buckeye Association of School Administrators/Ohio Leadership Advisory Council (BASA/OLAC), the Ohio Council of Professors of Educational Administration (OCPEA), the Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators (OAESA), and the Ohio Association of Secondary School Administrators OASSA).

The OLiproject intends to improve the instructional leadership practice of Ohio principals. The project focuses in specifically on instructional leadership practices that promote inclusion through: (1) engagement with teacher-based teams (TBTs) to support teachers’ efforts to use relevant data to experiment with evidence-based teaching practices and monitor results, (2) observation of teaching, and (3) non-directive coaching of teachers to support their instructional improvement. Districts selected will commit to the project for a two-year period.

For additional information, please see the attached News Release. Please contact Pamela VanHorn, Project Coordinator, to discuss the project or express interest. The deadline to respond is Feb. 13, 2015.
