School administrators in Mahoning and Columbiana counties gathered in Canfield to learn new ways to manage classrooms and introduce technology.

The leaders were given professional advice from a number of speakers on several topics including reform issues in the State of Ohio and how to use technology in the classroom to implement reform initiatives.

The seminar also highlighted a national trend for administrators to take on instructional roles in schools.

“Their responsibilities, especially with the new evaluation systems, is to help coach teachers on how to implement best practices in the classroom, how to measure student learning based on those practices,” said Ron Iarussi, Mahoning County Educational Service Center.

The conference held at the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center is an annual event.
