The Weekly Snapshot will be taking a hiatus over the summer, much like you it deserves a much-needed vacation. We look forward to picking back up in August, to share all of the exciting back-to-school news!


  • Ohio Educators Connect for Success Conference – Over 1,000 Ohio educators joined Battelle for Kids and BASA this week for our annual June conference. It was a wonderful two days, filled with exciting keynotes and powerful learning sessions, follow this link to see some of the presentation materials. If you didn't make it this year, we hope you will mark your calendar for next year, June 15-16, 2015. 
  • OAC Twitter Chats Taking a Break for Summer – The #OACteach Twitter chats have been a great success, thanks to all who have participated and hosted. All chats are archived on the OAC Collaboration Space. Over the summer we are taking a break from organized weekly chats, but we encourage you to continue to share with your OAC peers using the hashtag #OACteach. We’ll pick back up again in August.
