The Ohio Deans Compact on Exceptional Children is seeking nominations to increase its membership by a limited number beginning in September 2023. Members will serve two-year terms, which will take effect with the 2023-24 project year.
The Compact’s overriding mission is to affect Ohio’s system of preparation and personnel development in ways that contribute to the creation of a unified system of education responsive to the needs of all learners, thus improving the capacity of all educators [i.e., teachers, general education teachers, special education intervention specialists, related services providers (e.g., school psychologists), administrators, paraprofessionals, and others who interact with and have a role in supporting student learning] to more effectively teach and support every child. It is important to note that the Compact should not be construed as “the special education group,” nor is it the intent of the Compact to “fix special education.”
To that end, the Compact is partnering with the national CEEDAR Center to extend the learning of our members, as well as to contribute to the collective learning of our colleagues in other parts of the country.
If you’re interested in being considered for membership, or if you would like to nominate a colleague for membership, please complete and return the Nomination/Application for Membership form.
