Diversity Strategies for Successful Schools
OSBA has partnered with the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and the Ohio State University's Kirwan Institute to produce a series of videos that detail ODE's new Diversity Strategies for Successful Schools Policies.
These policies came about after the State Board of Education obtained a grant from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation to support the Board’s revision of its 1980 Equal Educational Opportunity Policy. During the July 2010 Board meeting, the OSU Kirwan Institute presented to the full Board membership 10 concepts for possible inclusion in the Board’s new Diversity Strategies Policy. Board members and ODE leadership provided feedback, and the Kirwan Institute has now prepared for Committee review an Interim Report that incorporates the feedback and includes 11 concept recommendations.
