Do you have ideas to improve student learning and experiences? Start thinking about the following grants!

The work of the Ohio Educational Foundation is to fund initiatives that enhance student learning, student achievement, and well-being, as well as promote social justice.

  1. Diversity Grants — To develop and pursue instructional classroom programs or curriculum that promote diversity, tolerance, and respect for humankind.
  2. Innovation Grants — For the pursuit of innovative and creative practices where learning is enriched by experiences or projects.
  3. Whisper Grants — Direct assistance to an OEA student-member with an identified hardship in meeting an educational or personal need. The Whisper is a rolling initiative and can be applied for when needed. This grant can be used for such things as glasses, coats, other medical or educational enhancements.

Applications will be due around February.

Moratorium Declared on State School Takeovers New Ohio Graduation Rules Ready


“The state budget deal imposing a moratorium on new Academic Distress Commissions tacitly admits what educators, parents and students have known all along—that state takeovers don’t work. Sadly, the legislature leaves the communities of Youngstown, Lorain and East Cleveland languishing under a failing law until they can finally figure out how to give districts struggling with high levels of poverty the support they need. As we continue the fight to pass HB 154 to repeal state takeovers and restore local control, I am deeply disappointed in the decision to allow CEOs to continue wreaking havoc on our schools.”
