Bozeman—More than 850 participants are participating in the Montana Behavioral Initiative Summer Institute at the MSU campus in Bozeman June 18-22.

“Creating a positive learning environment is a key part of student success,” said Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau. “All students deserve to be treated with dignity and respect and be surrounded by caring adults to help them achieve their goals. MBI fosters learning environments that produce results.”

MBI is a proactive approach to creating behavioral supports and a social culture that establishes social, emotional and academic success for all students.

Topics at the MBI Summer Institute include dropout prevention, integrated school mental health, bullying prevention, parent/family/community engagement, 21st Century learning strategies, engaging student voice and more.
