About Tech Prep

For more than 30 years, Ohio College Tech Prep has been serving Ohio’s students.  Tech Prep is jointly administered by the Ohio Department of Education and Ohio Department of Higher Education.  The six Tech Prep Regional Centers serve as resource hubs to support 611 school districts, 91 Career Technical Planning Districts, 23 Community colleges and 14 Universities.  Tech Prep is also the direct link to create in-demand career pathways and programs of study for Ohio’s students.  The statewide Tech Prep network encompasses extensive levels of expertise and access to shared resources at no cost to districts or students.

Ohio’s Strategic Plan for Education:

The work that Ohio College Tech Prep does to create partnerships is one of Ohio’s Strategic Plan Three Core Principles and directly impacts all of Ohio’s students.  These linkages directly affect Ohio’s “One Goal” of increasing opportunities for students immediately following high school graduation 

Tech Prep’s three goals are:

  • Build and foster relationships between education, business and community partners in the region.
  • Assist regional education partners in developing high-quality career-technical education pathways and programs of study.
  • Provide universal technical assistance to regional partners on related career-education topics.
