Welcome to the 2019-20 School Year!

I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing time this summer with family and friends.

As our new school year approaches we are looking for another banner year with Ohio HOSA and know that the success of Ohio HOSA is result of our leadership and encouragement of students.

With that said, we are excited to share new changes in our competitive events and programs. These changes will be discussed at our first-ever HOSA Advisor in-service workshops this September. Details are below.

Please contact me if I can be of any assistance to you throughout the year. I am prepared to complement your efforts. Best wishes for a great year and thanks for being a difference maker!

2019-20 Medical & Code of Conduct Forms
Similar to last year, we are encouraging advisors to have all of their students complete the HOSA Medical Form and Code of Conduct Form at the start of the year. One instructor shared with me that she has all students complete these forms the first week of school and then she does not need to worry about having the forms for the competition or conferences.
Send completed forms to me and I will hold them for all events sponsored by Ohio and National HOSA including FLC, Cavs Educational Event, Regional Competitive Events, SLC, and ILC.
Click the below button to access the forms that can be downloaded, printed, and completed.
Send an email to Jim Scott to sign up another teacher or your administrators that may benefit from this weekly newsletter.
