On December 10, nearly 600 Ohio education leaders gathered for the 2019 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, all centered around the theme of Better Together.

The Forum, which was held in partnership with the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and the Buckeye Association of School Administrators (BASA), featured a general session on Collaborative Teams Transforming Learning by Dr. Doug Reeves, a luncheon session on Acting on Data by Dr. Brian McNulty, and 13 learning sessions from Ohio superintendents, principals, teachers, and others. Sessions ranged from clarity and culture, the “how” of the OIP, the power of student-based teams, instructional leaderships strategies, and more.

During the Forum each year, OLAC also recognizes one Ohio school district for their outstanding leadership around the implementation of the practices in the Ohio Leadership Framework, use of OLAC tools for district and individual professional development, and support for regional/state OLAC professional development opportunities. The 2019 OLAC Outstanding District Award was presented to Alliance City Schools. Read the press release.
