The Ohio Department of Education uses a Statewide Systems of Support (SSOS) —state, regional, district—to create a single unified system that can meaningfully build the capacity of every district to move all children to higher levels of academic achievement.
The State Support Team Region 11 (SST 11) is one of Ohio’s 16 regional SSTs. Using a connected set of tools to improve instructional practice and student performance on a continuing basis, SST 11 staff assists districts in the development of a unified system of education. This unified system builds the capacity of every district to move all students, including those with disabilities, to higher levels of performance. The reliance on data to determine appropriate actions of each district is integral to the success of Ohio’s system of support.
SST 11 works closely with the Ohio Department of Education’s Offices for Innovation and Improvement, Exceptional Children, Early Learning and School Readiness, Approaches to Teaching and Learning, and Integrated Student Supports. SST 11 provides services and technical assistance to school districts, educational service centers (ESCs), community schools, early childhood centers, and families in 8 central Ohio counties.
