Get Connected
Get Involved

The Educational Partnership Network was created to connect businesses, educators, students, and families in Northeast Ohio. Our goal is to bring together today’s key stakeholders to build tomorrow’s successful workforce.



Welcome to the Northeast Ohio Education Partnership Network... or EPN as we call it, because the birth name is so long. This site is the culmination of months conversation and planning. The idea is simple - develop a space where conversations can take place, resources can be shared, needs identified and met, and success is celebrated. The overarching goal is to connect stakeholders around education. We are focused on educators, parents, students, businesses... any stakeholder in Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning and Columbiana Counties.
