How can schools help students stay Healthy, Safe, Supported, Challenged, and Engaged?
This exciting new series of student roundtable discussions is a collaborative project of The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) and the Ohio Association of Student Leaders (OASL). Student leaders from across the state of Ohio are invited to participate in this important dialogue. Each monthly Zoom meeting will focus on one of the 5 pillars of ODE's Whole Child Framework for schools: Healthy, Safe, Supported, Challenged and Engaged.
Ohio’s strategic plan for education, Each Child, Our Future, puts the whole child at the center, where each component of the plan works harmoniously to support a whole-child approach. Likewise, Ohio’s Whole Child Framework also places the whole child at the center, with district, school, family and community supporting the needs of the whole child using a comprehensive approach. A whole child approach broadens district and school focus beyond academics to include meeting students social-emotional, physical and safety needs. The Whole Child Framework provides a blueprint to meet these whole child needs, which are foundational to a child’s intellectual and social development and necessary for students to fully engage in learning and school.
The goal of this series is to increase student voice in implementing Ohio's Whole Child Framework. Objectives include:
Sessions will be designed and facilitated by student representatives on OASL's Executive Board.
