The 2015 Annual Institute on School Culture, Climate, and Positive Behavior Support will take place on August 12-13, 2015 at the SERESC Event & Conference Center in Bedford, NH.
This Institute will focus on sharing examples, tools, and practices within a multi-tiered system of supports framework in order to help schools and communities to improve their culture, climate, and safety and features a youth strand to engage young people who are interested in learning about how to become leaders of and advocates for positive change to their school’s culture and climate.
Last year’s Institute included over 150 people from New Hampshire and 5 other states, including youth, families, educators, mental health providers, policy makers and community members.
