LEADING FOR EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE!
MICHAEL HANSHAW In reviewing 2020, I am overwhelmed by the
Trumbull County ESC and educators across Trumbull County have taken to ensure the health, safety and well-being of
community at-large. Our
community has gone above and beyond to make the best of one of the most, if not the most, challenging circumstances we have had to face in our careers as public school employees - all while continuing to provide our students with outstanding educational opportunities. Well done to each and everyone of you! I am impressed by your work and proud to say I am among some of the most dedicated, creative, resourceful and professional educators who make up this industry. Moving forward, the Trumbull County ESC will continue to partner with our aligned school districts to finish the work that's been started. Looking back to a year ago, none of us foresaw the tasks that would be put before us in the face of this pandemic. However, together we have stood through these challenges and realized more than ever before that we are indeed stronger together.

The Trumbull County ESC's Curriculum and Instruction team secured a $55,400 grant to establish the new STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) The new learning opportunity, established and facilitated by our C&I specialists, is designed to enhance students’ online learning. The program serves students in grades 5-8. TCESC’s Remote STEM runs through the second semester of the 2020-2021 school year. The funding was made available through the Ohio Collaborative for Educating Remotely (OCER) and Transforming Schools to support schools in their efforts to improve remote learning. Supervisors of Curriculum & Instruction, Dana Butto and Doug Hiscox, drafted the grant application.

TCESC Assistant Superintendent Dr. Robert Marino Jr., who oversees C&I, said the new STEM program will complement TCESC’s STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math) Powered Learning. TCESC has been building curriculum for STEM that can be used in any instructional model: synchronously, asynchronously, or hybrid – remotely or face-to-face. Dana Butto
NILES VOCATIONAL PROGRAM 8 STUDENT PARTICIPANTS The Trumbull County ESC launched a new program designed to give students on-thejob training through a partnership with the City of Niles and Mayor Steve Mientkiewcz. Students worked with their instructors to clean up the grounds around the Wellness Center and also completed tasks at Niles Cemetery and the SCOPE Senior Center. Tasks have included painting and cleaning the city's emergency vehicles. Students are working with the Niles Park Department, Cemetery and Wellness Center. They have been painting throughout the city and will be completing a variety of jobs throughout the school year. Housed in McDonald High School, the program meets students’ needs for vocational training, job opportunity, and ability. The students, accompanied by their classroom teacher and assistant, go out into the field two days a week. The program also helps them develop teamwork, build confidence and work ethic, and enhance their social skills. Along with the hands-on training, the students also receive classroom credit.

PROFESSIONAL LEARNING: Virtual Personalized Learning Sessions Since the beginning of the pandemic, the C&I Team has been hard at work holding weekly training and meetings for teachers. The goal of these sessions was to help prepare teachers for remote learning. Many districts participated over a 7 week period to gain knowledge of different technology tools to utilize for their online classrooms. The team began these sessions the week of April 6th and completed on May 20th with a total of 1,530 teachers participating,
Town Halls From March to May, the C&I Team also held weekly Town Halls for teachers as a means to collaborate ideas of which methods worked and those requiring more in depth training. As the new school year began in August, the team decided to continue the town halls once a month to offer additional support to teachers. Between March and December, 577 teachers participated in 176 Town Halls.
District Personalized Learning Days Additionally, the C&I Team worked individually with districts since the beginning of the school year by offering either virtual or in person training based on districts needs. The team provided these training opportunities at least twice for each district reaching 1,903 teachers.
County Wide Days Under normal circumstances, the C&I Team holds a yearly Innovative Day. Due to the pandemic, the team decided to hold 3 virtual County Wide Days: August 20th, September 4th and November 3rd. Most all aligned districts participated. The attendance grew with each event with 1,078 teachers participating.

Although the classroom setting looks different - with desk shields, hand sanitizing stations and teachers and students wearing masks - our Trumbull County educators have remained dedicated and professional and true in their efforts to continue providing the most effective educational experience possible.
