2020 OLAC/PBIS Showcase @ Virtual
Dec 15 all-day

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.

This year’s theme, Leading & Learning Together, will include sessions aligned 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

Here’s what you can expect:

  • 20 sessions to choose from
  • Keynote speakers—Dr. Doug Reeves and Dr. Kent McIntosh
  • Networking and collaboration opportunities via virtual ‘breakout’ rooms
  • Access to all recorded sessions and materials following the event
  • Opportunity to earn continuing education credit

See the full lineup by downloading the event brochure.

Leading & Learning Together, 2020 OLAC & PBIS Showcase is FREE, but registration is required. Please visit the OLAC website to register.

For each block, participants will first individually complete an online module to build their background knowledge related to family engagement.
