Summit ESC and NeoNet recently announced a new partnership with SchooLinks, a college and career readiness platform now beginning to take root in different areas around Ohio.
Summit ESC, the first ESC in the state to create a consortium with SchoolLinks, is delighted to be able to provide this program to its districts at a significantly reduced cost.
“Every person on the planet learns differently–we all know that,” says Corey Hoynacke, Summit ESC’s Director of Curriculum & Instruction. “But personalizing methods, strategies, and approaches based on each student’s needs is sure to improve every aspect of daily instruction–both for the children and the teachers and staff.”
SchoolLinks offers resources and a platform for counselors and educators to help students, schedule classes, plan their 6-12 educational paths, organize college applications, track graduation requirements, explore career opportunities, connect with local, statewide, and national employers for jobs and internships, and connect with alumni. It truly is a powerful program that many districts are excited to explore through their partnership with Summit ESC.
In additional news, Summit ESC was just awarded one of 10 $300,000 ODE grants to create a Personalized Learning Specialist position for serving the northeast Ohio region and the rest of the state. Summit ESC partnered with the ESC of Western Reserve to apply for this grant.
Over the course of the next two years, this Specialist will work with districts and ESC specialists to create the Ohio Personalized Learning Network. Summit ESC is thrilled to be able to play a large role in this new work and is excited to be able to offer the services of this Specialist to various districts as they begin to explore the world of personalized learning to meet the needs of their students.
