Welcome to the OCCS Website: Members can log in for extended features.
OCSS was established in 1956 with the purpose of advocating for and supporting social studies education in Ohio.
The Ohio Legislature has two bills that threaten the very goals of social studies education in Ohio. OCSS is committed to opposing these bills in a non-biased and professional approach in order to protect and defend the teaching and learning of outstanding social studies.
If there ever was a singular moment for a social studies teacher to engage in civic action, now is that time.
Please consider offering your support and leadership through the following:
