The 2020 MO SW-PBS Summer Institute

June 9 through June 11, 2020

Plan to join us for Summer Institute 2020, June 9-11, at the Tan Tar A Conference Center in beautiful Osage Beach, Missouri! Our theme this year is “TEAMS…Rooting for Each Other!” 

It takes a village, and this 3-day conference will be a great opportunity for schools and districts to encourage and support each other by sharing their knowledge of PBIS systems and practices and networking with other educators who are making a difference with their students. Last summer, over 1,000 educators from all over the United States and 2 other countries attended this premier event devoted to improving school culture and climate through the implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention Supports.
