The 2020 MO SW-PBS Summer Institute has been cancelled!

MO SW-PBS appreciates the level of concern that we are all experiencing in association with the COVID-19 pandemic. We are all forced to make difficult decisions around our daily lives and workplace structures.

The safety and well-being of our Missouri educators, as well as our out-of-town attendees, are our highest priority! So, out of an abundance of caution, MO SW-PBS has canceled Summer Institute 2020 which was scheduled for June 9-11 at Tan-Tar-A Convention Center, Osage Beach, MO. IMPORTANT:  Tan-Tar-A is automatically cancelling all room reservations that were associated with Summer Institute. Please do NOT call the resort!

Our theme for Summer Institute 2020 was “TEAMS…Rooting for Each Other…While Building Grace, Guidance, and Growth.” Little did we know when we selected that as our theme how appropriate and important this message would be at this time. MO SW-PBS’s primary concern remains the well-being of our fellow educators and the students & families you serve, and we are rooting for your success. We are committed to providing guidance and resources that may be useful as you meet the educational, emotional, and behavioral needs of your students and families. We are exploring options for delivering recorded and live virtual professional learning experiences through our MO SW-PBS website and/or social media platforms.

Recognition ceremonies have always been an important part of Summer Institute as we honor and celebrate the schools that have successfully impacted student outcomes through the implementation of positive behavior supports. MO SW-PBS is currently working on revising our recognition application process to adjust for the disruptions schools are experiencing. More information regarding recognition will be forthcoming soon.

Please reach out to your regional consultant with any need you may have as you navigate these uncharted waters.
