At its September 2009 meeting, the State Board of Education formally adopted the vision document entitled "Meeting the Challenges of the 21st Century: A Vision for Transforming PK-12 Education in Ohio."
The main theme of the vision is for all students to graduate from the PK-12 education system with the knowledge, skills and behaviors necessary to be well prepared for success. The State Board has identified four objectives to reach this vision:
- Teaching 21st century knowledge and skills for real-world success;
- Effectively delivering support for a high quality education; and
- Providing sufficient resources which are efficiently managed; and
- Developing a statewide outreach and communication strategy on board policy and the importance of education in the 21st century.
