BPA, DECA and SkillsUSA Updates

December 18, 2020 8:16 AM | Ohio ACTE (Administrator)

BPA & DECA Announcement

“The Ohio Department of Education, Business Professionals of America, Ohio Association and Ohio DECA are committed to protecting the health, safety and welfare of all its students and teachers while providing equitable opportunities for members.

During the week of December 7th, both the BPA and Ohio DECA Board of Directors made the difficult and necessary decision to host the 2021 state-level competitions and conference events virtually.  We recognize this is not an ideal situation, but the safety and well-being of members, volunteers and staff remains our top priority.

We continue to ask for your patience while we develop the plans moving forward with this year’s conference.  As more information becomes available, we will provide updates through the Business, Finance and Marketing Newsletter (subscribe here) and DLG Membership Registration listservs. 

We continue to take various preparedness and preventative measures.  We also echo the advice of Governor Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Health in asking all Ohioans to engage in and promote the practice of everyday preventive actions.

Thank you for your continued efforts on behalf of Ohio students, and thank you for your attention to this important information. 

More information is forthcoming.”

SkillsUSA Ohio

As previously announced, regional competitions will be held virtually this year. Our plan moving forward will consist of an online test for the technical skilled contests. These tests will be comprised of employability skills and technical skilled trade questions, which will be administered by CETE. Leadership contests will go straight to state. We understand this is a new process for everyone and are aware there may be questions; therefore, we will be holding multiple virtual meetings in January to discuss how the process will work and address any concerns you may have.

We recognize this is not an ideal situation, but The Ohio Department of Education and SkillsUSA Ohio are committed to protecting the health, safety, and welfare of all its members and teachers while providing equitable opportunities for SkillsUSA Ohio members. We also echo the advice of Governor Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Health in asking all Ohioans to engage in and promote the practice of everyday preventive actions.

We continue to ask for your patience while we develop the plans moving forward with this year’s regional competitions. As more information becomes available, we will provide updates through the SkillsUSA Ohio website and newsletter.
