New cohort announced: Ohio Instructional Leadership Academy (OILA)

The Ohio Association of Elementary School Administrators is pleased to announce the formation of the Ohio Instructional Leadership Academy (OILA) cohort for the 2019-20 school year. OILA is a K-12 program that utilizes blended learning strategies to provide building leadership teams with skills that will impact educator growth and student achievement.
OILA was first developed in 2013 through a partnership with several professional organizations with Race to the Top grant funds. The success of the program did not go unnoticed by the Ohio Department of Education and, as a result, we will receive funding to serve teams of educators again this year. One building-level principal and one teacher are considered a team for OILA.

This cohort will begin in September 2019 and end in March 2020. Check out the OILA information packet with more details, a page of answers to Frequently Asked Questions about OILA, and a team registration form.

If you are interested in forming a team at your building, please fill out the team registration form in the packet and send it to Nancy Abrams via email at or fax at 614-547-8089. 

Please note that registration is limited, so reply quickly to secure your spot!
