Race to the Top. Ohio Report. Year 3: School Year 2012-2013. [State-Specific Summary Report]
US Department of Education
This State-specific summary report serves as an assessment of Ohio's annual Race to the Top implementation. The Year 3 report for Phase 1 and 2 grantees highlights successes and accomplishments, identifies challenges, and provides lessons learned from implementation from approximately September 2012 through September 2013. The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) used its internal stocktake meetings to review implementation, address potential barriers, and share information across all stakeholders. The State also identified regional staff to serve as content experts for each education reform area. In addition, ODE enhanced its communication efforts in Year 3, broadening the audience for its reform efforts from those participating in Race to the Top to all local educational agencies (LEAs) statewide. Further, ODE experimented with innovative communication strategies to provide information and updates to educators, using social media to drive interest for and engagement in Race to the Top initiatives. ODE also held stocktake meetings with each of its participating LEAs to discuss local implementation successes and challenges as well as gather feedback on State supports. As a result, the State reported more effective and efficient channels for sharing information with and gathering feedback from LEAs. Legislative changes throughout Year 3, including changes to the Third Grade Reading Guarantee and modifications to State requirements for the student growth component of educator evaluation ratings, posed significant communication and implementation challenges for the State. A glossary is included. [For "Race to the Top. Ohio Report. Year 2: School Year 2011-2012. [State-Specific Summary Report]," see ED539242.]
