Across Ohio

We are proud to collaborate with urban, suburban, and rural schools, the Ohio Department of Education, and many education-focused organizations to solve problems, developing and piloting big ideas that offer new opportunities for students, and delivering tools and resources to support Ohio educators every step of the way.

SOAR Network

For more than 15 years, SOAR has been a model for showing how like-minded school systems can connect, collaborate, and innovate to improve learning. We are building on this legacy and evolving SOAR as a network of Ohio districts collaborating to take collective action toward shaping 21st century learning experiences for every student. Through the power of our network during the 2017-18 school year, SOAR districts will be equipped to implement exciting new models of learning, and will lead the way for other school systems toward what works in this new era in education.
