2017 Conference on School Culture, Climate, & Positive Behavior Support
August 11, 2017 –
This year’s conference theme, Classroom Success with MTSS, focuses on how the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support framework provides a structure for teachers, staff, administrators, families and students to access research-based instructional practices, with a focus on the classroom. The conference highlights presentations on classroom- and school-based strategies for incorporating supports for all students into the typical elementary and secondary school program. This annual event represents an intersection between schools, students, teachers, administrators, behavioral health, youth/family organizations, and community systems at the pre-school, elementary, secondary, and post-secondary levels.
Sessions will offer exemplars, tools, and practices for each stage of learning, and will feature exemplars that demonstrate how implementation of the fundamental elements of a MTSS can help schools and communities to improve their culture, climate, and safety. The youth strand is an opportunity for young people to learn about how to become leaders of and advocates for positive change to their school’s culture and climate.
