2018 Action Forum


On December 12, 2018 nearly 700 Ohio education leaders gathered for the 2018 OLAC Action Forum in Columbus to learn, network, and collaborate around the use and impact of the OLAC tools and resources to strengthen leadership practices.

The Forum, which was held in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and the Buckeye Association of School Administrators (BASA), featured four general sessions and 11 learning sessions from Ohio superintendents, principals, teachers, and others. Information about the keynote and presentations are available below. Additional handouts and resources can be downloaded from the event's mobile app, Guidebook.
