To support the District’s strategic plan of promoting a culture of inclusive excellence, Olentangy Schools hosts the annual ONE Community Conference focused on diversity, equity and inclusion. The event is a unique opportunity for students, educators, administrators, parents and community members within the district and across central Ohio to come together for rich discussion, learning and connection. Held in the month of February, the conference features expert and student facilitated workshops and keynotes across a variety of topics.
The theme of this year’s event was “Equity and the Arts”, as recognizing artistic and cultural talents is an essential component in facilitating growth, acceptance, and true connection in our community. The conference featured a keynote from hip-hop artist and educator Dr. Jason Rawls, Ed.D., expert and student facilitated workshop sessions, a K-5 elementary track, and student speakers.
