How to Support Your Child’s Health and Well-Being During Ohio’s Ordered School-Building Closure

The COVID CareLine is a new, toll-free number and emotional support call service created by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services.

Thank you, Port Clinton!

We want to express our most sincere gratitude to Scott Cross, Nichole Wiechman, the Port Clinton High School Leadership Council, and everyone at Port Clinton HS who invested so much passion and energy to plan an outstanding Annual State Conference. Your efforts are greatly appreciated. While we can't begin to imagine the disappointment caused by the cancellation of the conference, please know that you have our respect, gratitude, and love.

State Board Elections - Coming Soon!

Many of you are wondering - what's happening with elections?! OASL is working behind the scenes to record speeches and the question prompts from each candidate. Once those sessions have been recorded, Executive Director, Connie Miley will be sending those video recordings and voting information to delegates, and their advisors. As would have been the case at State Conference, only schools registered to attend conference will be receiving these instructions and videos of the candidates. Each school will submit one ballot, as always. Advisors, please keep your eye on your email for more details!
