The Ohio Leadership Advisory Council is a partnership between the Buckeye Association of School Administrators and the Ohio Department of Education. Our goal is to provide educators - no matter their role - with the structures and resources they need to develop shared and effective leadership at every level.
OLAC is an advisory and study group comprised of representatives of key professional associations, business and school board representatives, practitioners in leadership roles, higher education representatives, and state department of education personnel. These distinguished leaders from across the state came together to identify what it means to be a leader and what knowledge and skills it takes to successfully lead.
OLAC's mission is to provide educators with the structures and resources necessary to develop and support effective leadership at every level. The centerpiece of OLAC's work is the Ohio Leadership Development Framework. This framework promotes the use of collaborative structures - district leadership teams (DLTs), building leadership teams (BLTs), and teacher-based teams (TBTs) - to lead schools and share the responsibility for improving student achievement.
