To All Ohio Making Schools Work Sites!

Ohio Making Schools Work Regions (MSW) formerly High Schools That Work Regions, would like to sincerely thank all of you for your dedication and  hard work in implementing the High Schools That Work, Making Middle Grades work and most recently Making Schools Work improvement models.  Our Ohio schools have been consistently recognized over the years for their improvement efforts and for our state leadership in support of this work.  We are proud to have shared in the successes you experienced.

Although funding for Making Schools work has been eliminated from the state budget for FY24-25, we hope that you will continue with your school improvement endeavors.  We appreciate each and every one of you and are honored to have had an opportunity to be a partner with you in school improvement.
