Staff Information ...

State Support Team Region 9 (SST9) provides support and services to regional educational partners in the areas of continuous improvement, special education, literacy, early learning and school readiness, family engagement, and secondary transition from high school. We accomplish this through a tiered service delivery model, including professional development opportunities for individuals and/or teams of administrators, educators, school staff, and families.

SST9 consultants are trained facilitators of the Ohio Improvement Process (OIP) and possess expertise in a wide variety of high-yield evidenced-based strategies.  We also provide targeted support for partners who have specific needs.  SST9 works in concert with the Ohio Department of Education and provides services as determined by the Ohio Grant Agreement with Ohio’s State Support Teams. We take pride in the fact that we are a collaborative, cohesive, and highly skilled team of consultants.
