Newly Updated OLAC Module: TBTs: What Districts Need to Know


Teacher-based teams are an integral part of an aligned leadership structure in schools. And research tells us that effective TBTs are leading to improved outcomes.

TBTs: What Districts Need to Know, our newly updated learning module provides support for the development of teacher-based teams (TBTs) as part of an aligned leadership team structure used by districts and their schools to continually improve instructional practice and student learning.

This free module now includes the latest research linking the work of TBTs to improved outcomes for students and staff, and new resources and videos that have been reformatted for time and content.

The module also features State Support Team directors as they share their insights regarding successful practices they are seeing in their regions. Foundational elements for the OhioImprovement Process, the 5 Step Process, and Inclusive School and District Cultures are also embedded in the module.

This module aligns with:

  • Ohio's Leadership Framework: All Areas
  • Ohio Improvement Process: All Stages

Don't forget that you can download certificates of completion from all OLAC modules and webinars to use for continuing education credits with your LPDC. Learn more.
