    Responsive, Reimagined, and Resilient Leadership
    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.

    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.

    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 continue the OLAC and Ohio PBIS Network partnership to host a joint event again this year. This one-day, virtual conference will combine the best of the OLAC Action Forum and the Ohio PBIS Showcase.
