Grant to Fund Expansion of College Credit Plus Teaching Credentials

The Ohio Department of Education and Workforce has awarded Wright State University, in collaboration with the Montgomery County Educational Service Center and Learn to Earn Dayton, a $230,364 grant to empower local educators and enhance educational opportunities for students across the Dayton region. The grant will be used to fund a new initiative to enable more area teachers to earn valuable credentials, equipping them with the necessary qualifications to teach College Credit Plus (CCP) courses.

CCP is separate from programs like AP or IB classes, which many public schools also offer. Any student in Ohio can access CCP. That includes homeschool students, private school students, and public school students.

“The ability to increase the number of faculty who can teach College Credit Plus courses in our high schools is critical to efforts to meet the educational needs of students and the workforce goals of our community,” said Shannon Cox, superintendent of the Montgomery County Educational Service Center.

Further details on how area teachers can take advantage of this opportunity will be communicated through Wright State University - Learn to Earn Dayton will share this information when available.
