About the Ohio Deans Compact

The Ohio Deans Compact believes that all students deserve the opportunity to learn at high levels and can do so when held to high expectations and provided the necessary services and supports. For this to happen, educators must have the right knowledge and skills to support higher levels of learning for all students, which requires many partners across the P20 continuum working together.

Our Work

To advance our mission, our work is focused on:

Collaborative Inquiry, Communication & Collective Action
Preparation, Practice, Personnel, Partnership
Improving Educator Capacity
Every child learns at high levels

Our Priorities

To strengthen and expand our work, the Compact is also committed to the following priorities:

Improving Literacy Outcomes

Responding to Personnel Shortages

Expanding Representation in the Educator Workforce

Accelerating Learning for all Students

Advancing Postsecondary Outcomes for Youth with Disabilities

“We are collaborative rather than competitive, and that’s one of the things I really appreciate about the Compact is there’s such a strong feeling of collaboration.”
