The Dissemination Committee advises the Compact on activities related to communicating the purpose and priorities of the Compact, identifying strategies for wider engagement in Compact activities in collaboration with partner groups, and planning for the annual statewide conference.
The IE Committee advises the Compact on activities related to the study of selected aspects of the Compact’s work (e.g., use of inclusive instructional high-leverage practices) as well as efforts to gauge the effectiveness of the Compact in carrying out priority tasks (e.g., implementation of the Compact incentive grant program).
The CoP supports representatives from institutions of higher education and their partners (e.g., P12) who are implementing or have implemented Compact-funded incentive grants. Participation in the CoP provides for collective inquiry into common problems of practice related to incentive grant priorities, the identification of strategies for addressing those problems (e.g., bridging the preparation to practice continuum), and shared learning.
The LLF is designed to expand diversity of perspectives, build greater community and connectedness for members and leaders – particularly those from culturally, ethnically, and racially minoritized groups – and inform the Compact’s work to incentivize the development of inclusive educator preparation programs, diversify the educator workforce, address personnel shortages in key areas, and disseminate relevant information that improves Ohio’s education system.
The LI Committee advises the Compact on activities related to the identification of strategies for addressing state-identified personnel shortages in critical areas. The LI Committee provides guidance on the Low Incidence Sensory Disabilities Collaborative, a group formed from the LI Committee, that serves as a forum for institutions of higher education participating in multi-IHE preparation programs leading to licensure in the areas of blindness/visual impairment, deafness/hearing impairment, and deafblindness.
The Policy Committee advises the Compact on issues of statewide importance (e.g., teacher shortages, devaluing of the teaching profession), and it proposes potential strategies and actions the Compact might take in supporting state efforts to address identified issues.
The TREW Committee advises the Compact on activities designed to support Ohio’s efforts to make the educator workforce more representative of the children it serves. TREW members include representatives from higher education, P12, professional associations, state education agencies, and other partner groups
