The OPEPP initiative addresses Ohio’s operating standards for school districts and schools, which establish specific expectations and guidelines enabling educators statewide to meet the needs of all students. The operating standards are in the form of 11 administrative rules and can be found in Ohio 3301-35 of the Ohio Administrative Code and 3301.07 of the Ohio Revised Code. Visit the Ohio Department of Education’s Operating Standards & Guidance site here for more information.
The OPEPP initiative also supports the Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities, which identify requirements for providing special education and related services to students with disabilities.
