Check back often for news, events and information from the Ohio Council of Community Schools.
OCCS sponsored our first charter school in 2002-2003. We're proud to be celebrating 20 Years of Advancing Education through Leadership and Innovation at this year’s convocation. We are thrilled to be back at The Renaissance Hotel in Westerville, Ohio on August 2nd and August 3rd, 2023. The OCCS Annual Convocation is a training and networking event designed specifically for the needs of OCCS sponsored schools. The Convocation is broken into two days: the first day is dedicated to our brick-and-mortar schools and the second day is for our eSchools.
From start to finish, your time at The OCCS Convocation will be customizable with our easy-to-use mobile app. Attendees will be able to learn in large groups, small classrooms, or individually in mental health and wellness spaces. Trainings are provided to school staff in the areas of special education, leadership, academic learning loss, data analysis, school leadership and mental health.
OCCS is proud to have partnered with world-renowned keynote speakers over the years, including Ruby Payne, Michael Bonner, Ron Clark, Tom Vanderark, and Howard Fuller. This year, we are calling for session proposals! Please visit our Convocation webpage for more information, or go directly to our session proposal application.
