Welcome from LFO President

Welcome to Learning Forward Ohio!  We are a network of education practitioners from all over the state of Ohio who are dedicated to planning and delivering the highest standard of professional learning.  We strive to help every educator in Ohio engage in professional learning every day so every student achieves.  Whether we are educating a group of students, coaching one-on-one, or leading an organization, we do this through advocating for best practices around the Professional Learning Standards.

To this end, we invite you to explore the many resources Learning Forward Ohio has to offer.  We provide a premier learning opportunity each year at our Instructional Leadership Academy each summer with experts in Executive Leadership, Coaching and Ohio’s Learning Standards.   You can find information about the Professional Learning Standards, Coaching  and other topics at our Resources page.

We hope that you will consider joining us in the work of supporting all Ohio educators with exemplary professional learning in the quest for excellent teaching and learning every day.  Please visit our Membership page to learn more.


Best Regards,

Lisa Rogers, LFO President
