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 teacher-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 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.


Like our past events, you can expect high quality content from experts and practitioners from around the state and across the U.S., as well as opportunities to network and collaborate - the only change will be that it will be from the comfort of your own home or office.

This free event will be held virtually on Tuesday, December, 15.

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


What you can expect:

  • 20 sessions to choose from
  • Keynote speakers - Dr. Doug Reeves and Dr. Kent McIntosh
  • Networking and collaboration opportunities with presenters
  • Access to all recorded sessions and materials for 7 days following the event
  • Opportunity to earn contact hours
