One of the big topics in today’s education world is P-16. What does that mean? It is a term used to describe the efforts to connect three largely disconnected levels of education - pre-school, K12, and college. The goal is to create a more integrated, seamless education system, not by creating yet another set of rules and agreements and programs to follow, but to find better ways of making existing programs work together.
Ohio has several P-16 councils in existence and efforts are underway with OACHE’s help to establish some P-16 councils in the rural Appalachian region of Ohio. While OACHE continues to put together resources and information for a page dedicated to P-16 initiatives, you can visit Ohio’s Partnership for Continued Learning to learn more about P-16 efforts in Ohio.
