Ohio FCCLA State Leadership Goals

As the 2015 State FCCLA Leadership Conference nears, the Ohio FCCLA staff would like to share with you the goals we have for your experience at the 2015 conference.


Throughout this year, we have challenged you to "Unmask Your Potential" through participation in various events. This years state conference is no exception! We hope to drive engagement of all FCCLA members through workshops, service projects, and exciting conference sessions. We will create an atmosphere of poise and professionalism among all FCCLA members as we award them for their accomplishments throughout the 2014-15 school year. Our goal is to reduce the cost of attendance to our conference (only $25 to attend!), ensuring that any member, adviser, or guest is capable and welcome to attend. Our vision for this conference is to provide 2,500 members, advisers, and guests with the Ultimate Leadership Experience! Let's work together to reach these goals and celebrate 70 years of Ohio FCCLA!

Modification to WebXam Proctor Requirement

CETE, the maintainer of WebXam, works with the Ohio Department of Education, Office of Career-Technical Education to balance score credibility with administrative burdens.  In the 2013-2014 school year, CETE and the Ohio Department of Education established a proctoring policy for Ohio CTE testing.  Part of this policy was the requirement that tests be proctored by an employee who is not a teacher of the area being tested.  For the 2014-2015 school year, the wording was as follows:

An individual who proctors a test for a student must

*        be a paid employee of the school district.
*        not be a student, student teacher, or unpaid volunteer.
*        not currently be a teacher of the course being tested.

After reviewing the test security policy, to help facilitate the testing process the Ohio Department of Education and CETE are removing the requirement that the test proctor not be a teacher in the area being tested.  In other words, teachers will be permitted to proctor their own tests.

Effective March 6, 2015, the WebXam Ohio Career-Technical Education Testing System Test Security Rule Book is modified to say the following:

An individual who proctors a test for a student must

*        be a paid employee of the school district.
*        not be a student, student teacher, or unpaid volunteer

The policy is in effect as of March 6, and districts can begin proctoring in accordance with these revised requirements. Districts may at their discretion continue to follow the withdrawn requirement, using proctors who are not the teacher.  However, this is now a district-level decision and no longer required.

All other rules regarding test confidentiality and participant responsibility remain in place, as part of our effort to maintain fair, reliable, and valid CTE tests for Ohio (score credibility). Please contact WebXam Support at webxam@osu.edu or 614-292-4988 with any questions about this change

Code of Regulation

Code of Regulations


One on the items of business for The Ohio FCCLA Annual Conference Business Session
will be approval of the Ohio FCCLA Association Code of Regulations (former Ohio
FCCLA Constitution and Bylaws).  The Code of Regulations is posted on the Ohio
FCCLA website for your review.


This process began in the fall of 2012, with a directive from the Office of Career-
Technical Education Leadership that all five Career-Technical Education Student
Organizations have their current Constitution and Bylaws reviewed by outside legal
council to ensure compliance with non-profit organization law.  Ohio FCCLA
Association was the second Career-Technical Student Organization assigned to
execute the directive and begin the process in the Fall of 2014.  Barrett, Easterday,
Cunningham, and Eselgroth LLP law firm was contracted to complete the
scope of work.
In December of 2014, the 1st draft was presented to the Ohio FCCLA Board of
Directors.  A committee was established to review and make recommendations to the
Ohio FCCLA Board of Directors.   In March of 2015, the Ohio FCCLA Board approved
the final Code of Regulations document unanimously. 


After the meeting of the Ohio FCCLA Board of Directors, the proposed Code of
Regulations was posted to the Ohio FCCLA Association's website to be accessible to
the Ohio FCCLA member delegates.
