OLAC is pleased to announce the dates for the 2015 OLAC Action Forum – December 7 and December 9, 2015.
For the first time ever, OLAC will be offering this popular event on two separate dates to accommodate demand. Both days will feature a keynote presentation from Dr. Brian McNulty, Partner at Creative Leadership Solutions, and breakout sessions featuring presentations from educators and school teams sharing success stories, opportunities, and challenges.
Stay tuned to our website to learn more about the 2015 Action Forum as event details are announced.
I recently followed the recommendation of the banners flashing across the OLAC website and checked out the section called "The Facilitator Hub." Nestled into a section of the website under the CERTIFIED FACILITATORS tab, I found a framework and a series of tools that will prove extremely useful for SST consultants and others supporting the OIP.
One of our biggest challenges as regional facilitators is our ability to stay current and connected ourselves as we work within a system where best practice is constantly evolving. The ability to obtain and analyze data rapidly means that we have to be ready to respond rapidly, as state and federal requirements for improvement change regularly, district leadership changes frequently, and even facilitators of the OIP turnover.
