Over the years, we have heard you ask for professional development programs close to home. In an effort to respond, OSBA, with endorsement from the Ohio Educational Service Center Association (OESCA), created the OSBA ESC Leadership Academy. 

How can your board members benefit?

  • Learn from expert presenters and facilitators on topics relevant to your needs
  • Establish a network of peer support from your local area
  • Receive a certificate of completion/attendance to be used for OSBA award programs
  • Save time and money with minimal travel for Board of Education professional development

Each fall, a new ESC Leadership Academy begins by offering a package of two, three or four 3-hour evening programs to be held during the upcoming school year. The topics are picked by the ESC administration, in consultation with their boards, and OSBA provides the speakers.  

If you're a board member, ask your ESC superintendent if there is an ESC Academy offered in your area. If not, encourage participation. If so, take advantage and sign up!

If you're an ESC and want more information about offering an academy, contact Teri Morgan at 614-540-4000.
