Creating the Right Conditions for Learning: Improving Adult Actions to Positively Impact All Students

State Support Team, Region 4 (SST4) supports all districts in Lake and Geauga Counties in closing achievement gaps for students with disabilities and all other underperforming groups by helping them develop efficient, effective systems and processes, and by supporting use of evidence-based instructional practices.

SST4 provides free professional development and support to meet the many and varied needs of the districts and community schools. SST4 provides intensive support for some districts and buildings according to state and federal requirements. We offer professional development opportunities and technical assistance for all districts and community schools in our region, with a focus on early learning and school readiness, systemic school improvement/Ohio Improvement Process, inclusive instructional practices, multi-tiered systems of support (including Response to Intervention and Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports), and special education.
