Creating Equitable Classrooms: 3 Keys that Work
Dec 9 @ 8:30 am – 11:30 am

In this 4-part virtual series, sponsored by State Support Team Region 1 and presented by Cathy J.  Lassiter, Ed.D.

Participants will delve into three main topic areas:

  • Fostering Collective Teacher Efficacy: includes a discussion on what this means and why it is so critical to equity in the classroom
  • Building Teacher Credibility: considers the huge impact of teacher credibility on student learning outcomes and the factors that influence students’ determination of the credibility of their teachers
  • Strengthening Core Instruction: focuses on practices that improve instructional design and delivery for strong Tier 1 instruction

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

Leading & Learning Together, 2020 OLAC & PBIS Showcase is FREE!

PBIS Tier II Training
Jan 12 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

This training is designed for PBIS Tier II teams from buildings implementing Tier I of PBIS with fidelity. Before attending the training, schools must have earned at least a 70% on Tier I of the Tiered Fidelity Inventory (TFI)* within the last year, and their triangle data should indicate at least 80% of their students earning an average of 0-1 behavioral referral per month.

Tier II teams will receive concrete, evidence-based interventions to enhance their PBIS framework to help students, including students with disabilities, manage their behaviors in proactive, positive ways. Participants will learn additional ways to interact with students to help increase positive behavior and create an action plan to begin inclusion of new interventions.


 

Please Note

  • The PBIS Tier II training is a series of three events.
  • A TFI should be conducted at  your school prior to attending this training series. Please contact Tamie Cruz, M.A. or your ESC representative to schedule your TFI before the training.
