Thirty eight percent of all incoming college freshmen in Ohio require remedial coursework—non credit courses in math or English designed to raise skills to the level required to complete college level work. In Ohio only 27% of students taking remedial classes successfully complete a degree within six years.

In a historic multi-college, multi-district collaboration, fourteen Stark County districts are collaborating with Kent State Stark and Stark State College of Technology to eliminate math remediation at the college level for Stark County high school graduates. Both K-12 and higher education faculty will collaborate on a two year process of aligning skills and competencies in math to eliminate the need for remediation. Student success and support will be the focus. Each district will design with college faculty a plan to meet the need of their students. Quarterly summits will provide opportunities to share best practice and adjust pilot projects. The project is funded by grants from the Ohio College Access Network and the Stark Education Partnership; grant funds dedicated to the project by the Educational Services Center and school districts; and in-kind matches by the participating colleges, district and ESC.
