Leading Through the Fire
Buckeye Community Hope Foundation is excited and proud to announce “Leading through the Fire” as the theme of its 2023 School Leadership Summit. We will hold the Summit on June 8 and 9 at Quest Conference Center in Columbus. The Summit is BCHF’s premier professional development event of the year. We are pleased to hold this event in person after three years of virtual summits due to COVID.
BCHF selected the theme “Leading through the Fire” based on our annual needs assessment in which schools voiced consistent concerns for student well-being, behavior, and positive school culture. The overall goal of the Summit is support for school leaders and leadership teams in intentionally planning for, developing, and maintaining a positive school climate. And, as you can see by its title, we plan to have a lot of FUN with this theme (no real fire though!). We encourage leaders of all our sponsored schools to attend, and to consider bringing building leadership team members.
Features of the Summit include a guest presentation by Tara Ruckman and Stephanie Howell of “Control the Chaos” and a panel of school leaders who will discuss best-practice strategies for positive school climate. Sessions will present information, discussion, and activities about ways to support teachers with positive climate and discipline, ways to support students, deeper understanding of leadership for PBIS, and de-escalation techniques. The Summit will feature some interesting learning formats to celebrate being in-person this year and to encourage networking and interaction among participants.
BCHF will host the Summit at Quest Conference Center near the Polaris area just north of Columbus. Please note that the address for Quest has changed since our last in-person meeting--- the address is now 9200 Worthington Road, Suite 400. The Conference Center is nearby to several Polaris-area hotels just off I-71, and to the Polaris Fashion Place shopping center. Registration is now open for the Summit!
