The Voice of Public Education in Western Ohio

As a follow-up to the November President’s Summit, there will be regional mini-summits going on around the state over the next couple of months. The purpose is to have “Critical Conversations” with local leaders around Janus v. AFSCME.

Please share this information with your local leaders, including presidents, treasurers, building reps, membership chairs and the members of local executive committees and encourage them and/or members of the local leadership team to attend one of these meeting. 

Each local president will be contacted directly regarding the importance of their attending at least one of the meetings. 

Local leaders can attend any of the planned events.

WOEA Board of Directors Positions


OEA Member Lobby Days provide an opportunity for OEA members to meet with state legislators to discuss key educational issues. In an effort to broaden support for public education issues and build partnerships with other public education stakeholders, we encourage you to invite parents, administrators, school board members and students to join our lobby day efforts.
Learn How to Participate

Our statewide groups are gathering stories and information for our #PublicSchoolShoutout campaign. We invite you to use #PublicSchoolShoutout to post photos and videos on your social media explaining the great work and cool things happening in your schools and classrooms every day. #PublicSchoolShoutout is a way for us all to showcase why we are proud of Ohio's public schools. Please join us by using the hashtag. While our #PublicSchoolShoutout campaign will continue throughout the year, our efforts will culminate in a week of activities in schools and classrooms Feb. 11-17. Mark your calendars - we'll ask you to join us by hosting a walk-in before school starts, invite members of your community in to see your school or plan special classroom activities to celebrate and show why you are proud of your neighborhood public school with a #PublicSchoolShoutout. Use your own ideas or one of ours - we'll provide toolkits with easy-to-follow steps on how you can celebrate with us. Then post your photos and videos on your social media with the hashtag #PublicSchoolShoutout so we can all see how you're celebrating your pride in Ohio's public schools and like and retweet your posts.
