ODE Trauma-Informed Schools Conference @ Virtual
Nov 7 @ 9:00 am – 3:15 pm

The Ohio Department of Education is excited to host its first Trauma-Informed Schools Conference for Ohio’s educators and community partners so that, together, we can reach each child and help all students reach their fullest potential. This free event will be held virtually on Saturday, November 7.

The conference will:

  1. Provide information and tools that help educators and community partners better understand the impact of trauma on child development and learning
  2. Help educators apply trauma-informed practices at the district, building and classroom levels to best support the whole child
  3. Provide information and knowledge that supports educator self-care and whole child student well-being

Keynotes and presenters include nationally known individuals and Ohio’s educators and community partners who are engaged in these important practices. Presenters will share their knowledge and experience, while participants will have an opportunity to create networks, connections and engage in professional learning. The event offers an opportunity to become engaged in a statewide network of educators and community partners that promote and strengthen the understanding of the impact of trauma on students and educators alike in Ohio’s schools.

Throughout the day, participants will hear opening remarks from Ohio’s education leaders, participate in two keynote presentations and engage in three additional sessions where participants have opportunities to select from 15 presentations, including time to interact during speaker chats and community chats. Continuing education credits are provided for each session attended (if minimum participation is completed).

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
