All Ohio four-year institutions of higher education (IHEs) with accredited teacher and/or administrator preparation programs are eligible to apply for all priorities included in the RFA. The RFA may be downloaded form the link below.

On behalf of the Ohio Deans Compact on Exceptional Children, we look forward to working with you to promote sustainable and replicable improvements in Ohio’s personnel preparation and development system that contribute to building the capacity of teachers, administrators, schools, and districts to prepare every child for success.
