In Spring, 2009, a group of educators, businesspersons, and civic and nonprofit leaders came together to consider a new effort to foster significantly better outcomes for students at each educational level in Ashtabula, Columbiana, Mahoning and Trumbull Counties, a pre-kindergarten through college or P-16 initiative. Such initiatives have gained national attention and have shown promise for connecting pre-school, elementary, middle, high school, and postsecondary education to create a comprehensive, integrated system of student learning.

ACT Explore: Preparing Valley Students
For the past two years Eastern Ohio P-16 has provided middle school students with the opportunity to take ACT Explore. Over 4900 students and teachers have benefited from our assessment program Exploring ACT.
Why Explore? ACT Explore (www.act.org/explore) is a curriculum-based educational and career planning program that measures achievement in English, mathematics, reading and science for middle school students. The districts enter into a consortia agreement with P-16 that requires they host an informational session for parents explaining Explore, provide one-on-one post-assessment feedback to each student, meet with P-16 for an one-on-one pre-assessment evaluation, and meet as a multi-county group for a post-assessment evaluation. All these steps help assure the test isn't used as just another assessment tool.
Why middle school? Postsecondary preparation often begins too late. ACT's 2005 and 2006 research looked at six measurements that are traditionally touted as indicators of college and career readiness. What ACT proved is that being prepared in eighth grade outweighs high school grade point average, advanced/honors coursework, background characteristics, standard coursework and student testing behaviors when it comes to college and career readiness.
Exploring ACT - a great way to prepare our students!
