With a focus on Ohio’s system of preparation and ongoing personnel development, the Compact serves as a forum for bridging theory to practice, fostering meaningful P-16 partnership efforts, and identifying and responding to critical issues, such as personnel shortages that limit opportunities to learn for groups of students. The Compact provides a channel for communication and examination of ideas among state leaders; deans, associate/assistant deans, faculty; professional association representatives; district/school leaders; national partners; and others. It also provides opportunities for collaborative efforts to develop and implement innovative models of preparation.
