Compact’s Low Incidence Sensory Disability (LISD) Collaborative Addresses Personnel Needs

The Ohio Deans Compact awards incentive grants through a competitive request for application (RFA) process open to Ohio institutions of higher education. With the aim of better preparing educators to more effectively improve results for learners with diverse needs, two incentive grant priority areas call for the innovative redesign of educator preparation programs: Priority 1 focuses on merged/blended teacher preparation program development; and 2) Priority 2 involves educational leadership preparation redesign.

In 2013, an initial round of grants was awarded under Priority 1 to support the development of dual licensure models of preparation. Two years later, the Compact provided a second round of awards in this priority area, allowing institutions to adopt or adapt one of the dual licensure models developed through the initial round of incentive grant work. Dual licensure models have been designed at the undergraduate and graduate levels to result in candidates who are eligible to receive both a general education content area credential and an intervention specialist credential within already established time frames. 

The work of institutions funded in 2015 through Priority 2 involves the incorporation of course content related to collaborative and inclusive practices in educational leadership preparation programs, or the overhaul of an administrator preparation program to foster inclusive instructional leadership practice within the credit-hour constraints of the current traditional program.

More information about the institutions engaged in Priority 1 & 2 Incentive Grant efforts appears below.
