The FIP Your School Ohio courses were developed by Battelle for Kids in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education to advance the use of research-based formative instructional practices across the state. This FIP Your School Ohio site is still home to many of the complementary resources developed to help Ohio educators facilitate and implement FIP in your school.

Since early 2017, the learning modules are now hosted by the Ohio Department of Education at the SAFE Web Portal.
