Ohio Appalachian Collaborative: Personalized Learning Network Outcome Evaluation
April 11, 2019
With a goal to accelerate student achievement, the Ohio Appalachian Collaborative- Personalized Learning Network (OAC-PLN ) began in 2014 and involved 27 school districts mostly located in Eastern/Southern Ohio. OAC objectives included developing student access to advanced learning and effective instruction through a networked, 6-12th grade, high-quality blended learning and dual enrollment system. Battelle for Kids served as the project management organization for the Collaborative and subcontracted with Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs to conduct a multi-year external evaluation of the Ohio Department of Education’s Straight A-funded initiative.
