OSBA Book Club

Welcome to the OSBA Book Club

Ready...get set....go!...to the next OSBA Book Club selection!  We're enthused about our next Book Club selection.  The book, "Your School Rocks, So Tell People!" is authored by Ryan McLane and Eric Lowe, principals from two Ohio public school districts.  

The book is full of practical, easily-translatable tips and tools to jumpstart your district or your school building's visibility.  Dr. Joe Clark, a noted educator and author, commented, "Educators are always hoping for more parent engagement.  (This book) will help you turn that hope into reality."

"Your School Rocks" will give you ideas about:

  • Using videos to grab attention
  • Social media tools that extend your brand and message
  • Using platforms that appeal to each of your stakeholder groups
  • Meeting your parents...where ever they may be

The OSBA Book Club is a cost-free program allowing member districts (board members, administrators and district staff and community members) to read and learn together. OSBA's Cheryl Ryan explains why you should join the Book Club in the following video.


The OSBA Book Club began in the winter of 2014 with How Children Succeed:  Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, by Paul Tough.  We've read many great selections since then.  Please join us for our current book or spice up your knowledge with one of our previous reads.


Do you have a suggestion for another book that would be a great addition to the OSBA Book Club Series?  Email Teri Morgan with your suggestion at tmorgan@ohioschoolboards.org.
