President's Message

Hello OhioASCD Members,


It has been quite a unique road these past six months. As we look across our state, we have every model of student learning happening. From completely virtual, in person every other week, in person twice a week, or maybe even in person every day, the way in which we are interacting with our students, our colleagues, and our communities has never looked like this.

At OhioASCD, we realize that this is not a typical year.  With that, while we will not be having face-to-face professional learning opportunities as we have for so many, many years, we are looking forward to providing some amazing learning opportunities for you virtually beginning in January as we collaborate with various organizations and professional development leaders to do so.  

These past several months’ events have caused our organization to reflect on ASCD International’s focus on The Whole Child. Our professional learning opportunities will continue to support that as well as on addressing distance learning and addressing race. The first will focus on educator and student social emotional well being during distance learning as well as ways to meet the educational needs of all learners while in blended or remote learning.  Addressing race focuses on cultural competency, equity, white privilege, and the American experience for people of color.  

While our website provides a wealth of information, we hope you will follow us on Twitter @ohioascd or like us on Facebook at @ohioascded. 

We look forward to supporting you through these mediums as well as through our virtual learning opportunities coming to you in January and throughout 2021. 

Dr. Jennifer Knapp
