OLAC Training

December 15, 2020

Since 2015, the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio PBIS Network have hosted the Positive Behavioral Interventions & Supports (PBIS) Showcase, an annual event focused on showcasing Ohio’s schools implementing PBIS with high fidelity. This event brings together hundreds of Ohio principals, teachers, counselors, and others to network and share best practices around PBIS implementation to ensure safe and supportive school environments.


For more than 10 years, the Ohio Leadership Advisory Council has hosted the OLAC Action Forum—an annual event designed to bring hundreds of Ohio superintendents, principals, teachers, and others together to share stories about how district and building leadership teams and teachers-based teams are working together to impact all learners.


With a shared vision for building the capacity of those who lead, teach, and serve students in Ohio’s schools and beyond, we are excited to announce a partnership between OLAC and the Ohio PBIS Network to host a joint event this year. This one-day, virtual conference will combine the best of the OLAC Action Forum and the Ohio PBIS Showcase.


We Are Looking for Dynamic Presenters!

This is where you come in. This year’s event theme is Leading & Learning Together, 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. Sessions will be organized around three strands:

•             Leading, learning, and connecting in remote learning environments

•             Supporting the whole child, including students’ social emotional well-being

•             Ensuring equitable learning opportunities


Because the event will be virtual this year, all learning sessions will be pre-recorded a few weeks before the event. To encourage live engagement between attendees and presenters, we are working on ways to do that on the day of the event. You may be asked to participate in a live chat on December 15 during a scheduled time. More details will be available soon.


Visit the OLAC website to learn more about the event. To submit a proposal to present, complete this online submission form.


We are also seeking nominations for the 2020 OLAC Outstanding District Award which recognizes a district that demonstrates implementation of the practices in the Ohio Leadership Framework. To submit a nomination, complete this online nomination form.


All forms are due by October 15.
