Ohio’s school districts are preparing all students for success by providing the necessary supports to help them stay focused on their lifelong learning journeys.
 
Later this month, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Paolo DeMaria will host a live social media broadcast to spotlight how school districts are using whole child approaches to education. School district leaders will join the conversation to share how their education teams are supporting students and connecting schools, families and communities. This month’s broadcast will focus on Supported and Engaged, two of the five tenets found in the Whole Child Framework.
 
Watch the live event beginning at 3 p.m. on Jan. 28, on the Department’s Facebook and Twitter pages. No registration or additional sign-ups are required to watch. Educators, school leaders, support teams, community organizations, nonprofit partners, parents and caregivers are invited to watch and share their whole child strategies and successes. A recording of the event will be posted to the Department’s Whole Child webpage after the event.
 
Ohio’s Whole Child Framework outlines an approach that goes beyond academics to include meeting students’ social-emotional, physical and safety needs. This framework is a blueprint to community partnerships, family engagement and meeting the learning needs of all students.
Last month’s Whole Child Spotlight broadcast featured district leaders from Columbus City Schools and Wickliffe City Schools and their stories of community partnerships, school-family connections and more ways their education teams are keeping students healthy and safe.
