In support of the Ohio Department of Education’s (ODE) ongoing literacy initiative, Walsh University announced in November that it was restructuring its existing reading course curricula to expand reading science for education students and faculty. Regional partners include school districts and State Support Teams representing Stark, Ashtabula, Columbiana, Holmes, Wayne, Mahoning and Trumbull counties. Walsh was the first university in Northeast Ohio to implement the program by January 2020 and was one of only seven institutions in the state of Ohio to receive an Ohio Deans Compact on Exceptional Children Improving Literacy Partnership Grant.
