The Ohio Family Engagement Leadership Summit is a day of professional learning and connecting virtually with those dedicated to advancing effective family-school-community partnerships across Ohio and beyond. Hosted by the Ohio Statewide Family Engagement Center at The Ohio State University, this summit brings research to action by providing schools, families, and community partners with the tools they need to work together to launch all children to success. If you are a teacher, leader, or community partner looking for opportunities to evolve your practice to next generation family and community engagement, this summit is for you.
