Ohio Dept of Education Strategic Planning

Policy Director Gabriella Celeste has been an active member of the Ohio Department of Education’s Student Supports and School Climate and Culture Workgroup. The workgroup provided strategies that have been incorporated into ODE’s strategic plan “Each Child, Our Future.”

“The five-year plan recognizes that equity continues to be Ohio’s greatest education challenge — making sure each child has access to relevant and challenging academic experiences and resources across race, gender, ethnicity, language, disability, family background and/or income. The plan also stresses the importance of partnerships and quality schools. It identifies one goal focused on student success after high school and 10 supporting strategies that address excellent educators, standards for students, accountability for learning, supports for the whole child, expanding early learning and transforming the high school experience.”
