In accordance with the provisions from the recent budget, funding is available to Ohio’s licensed Educational Television Stations for the development, acquisition, and distribution of resources for educational use in the classroom and online.
The goal of this project is to provide resources that can be used by educators and students, not only in the 200 poorest districts, but across the state to inform, motivate and assist students as well as others who may be seeking new careers or career changes, as they explore, consider and plan their pathway for education and careers.
