2024 OLAC & PBIS Showcase

Call For Presenters

Submissions Due September 29, 2023

Submit Proposal

The Ohio Leadership Advisory Council (OLAC) and PBIS Showcase is a one-day professional learning event designed to share powerful examples about how district, building, and teacher-based teams are working together to impact all learners AND showcase Ohio’s schools implementing positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) with high fidelity.

Through this event, our goal is to help build the capacity of those who lead, teach, and serve students in Ohio’s schools and beyond. For the past two years, thousands of Ohio superintendents, principals, teachers, counselors, and others have participated in this FREE professional learning event.

New Date & Format This Year

This year, the Showcase is moving from December to January 31, 2024. We are excited to offer a completely live virtual event—live keynotes, live learning sessions, live Q&A with presenters, and a live student panel. The live event will allow us to engage in real time, while reaching as many Ohio educators as possible.

We Are Looking for Dynamic Presenters

This year’s event theme is Future Forward: Accelerating Leadership & Learning, and we’re seeking presentation teams to share their stories about the work of their TBTs, BLTs, DLTs, and PBIS Leadership Teams and the impact of this work on all learners—students and adults. Content will be organized around four strands:

  • Overcoming obstacles to learning: Addressing barriers that prevent students from engaging in learning.
  • Accelerating learning: Providing effective opportunities to learn through programs like after-school and summer programming, tutoring, and supporting districts in using high-quality instructional resources.
  • Preparing students for future success: Helping students re-discover their 'why' for learning and more smoothly transition to their next stages through career and college connections.
  • Leading forward: Using collaborative team structures to lead schools forward and share the responsibility for improving student achievement.
