President's Message

Welcome OhioASCD Members:

Welcome to the start of the 2018-19 school year. The Board has been working throughout the summer to create meaningful professional development opportunities for the upcoming year.

This year we will focus on Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), and the crucial role it plays in teaching, learning, and community engagement.

In doing so, we are connecting to our signature theme, the Whole Child Initiative. Launched by ASCD in 2007, this Initiative is an effort to change the conversation about education. 

At present, it is a narrowly defined academic achievement. The goal is to change it to one that promotes the long-term development and success of children. This approach is best captured in the following summary: “Each child in each school in each of our communities deserves to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged.”

We have engaged a number of organizations and school districts in order to support our work in this area. One of our major partners is the Aspen Institute National Commission on Social, Emotional, and Academic Development. The Institute Co-chairs, Linda Darling-Hammond and Tim Shriver, observed that scholars have issued consensus statements affirming that the latest science unequivocally shows that major domains of human development–social, emotional, and academic–are deeply intertwined in the brain and behavior, and that all are central to learning.
