Strategic Partnerships

A regional strategy will require persistence, innovation, and collaboration. When it comes to improving college readiness and raising postsecondary success rates, no one can go it alone. Alliances that give K–12 educators and postsecondary institutions access to skills and resources that lie outside their boundaries are essential. So The Central Ohio Compact forms strategic partnerships that enhance the region's capacity to bring to scale successful models, strengthen academic preparation, promote adult learning opportunities, and improve the productivity of educational institutions at all levels.
