About Us

Welcome!

State Support Team, Region 8 (SST8) supports districts and community schools in Medina, Portage, and Summit 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 research-based instructional practices.

SST8 provides free professional development and support to meet the many and varied needs of the districts and community schools. SST8 provides intensive support for some districts and buildings according to state and federal requirements, but also offers professional development opportunities, networks, and technical assistance for all districts and community schools in our three-county 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.
