The Professional Learning Collaborative of Ohio (PLCO)
PLCO was formed in 2019 as a partnership between four educational agencies who serve schools in Ohio:
- Butler County Educational Service Center
- Lake Geauga Computer Association
- Northern Buckeye Education Council (NWOCA)
- Northwest Ohio Educational Service Center
The PLCO was a successful applicant for a Future Forward Ohio grant that was awarded in January of 2022. Future Forward Ohio is a state-level initiative that brings together a unique mix of remote, hybrid, and blended learning partners from across the state to help schools and districts enhance, expand, and more effectively scale high-quality remote, hybrid, and blended education delivery models.
In 2022, The PLCO adopted the Ohio Learning Community as the name for their learning platform. The Ohio Learning Community is powered by the PLCO.
