The BEST Summer Institute is a learning community that invites school teams of educators, family members, community and human services providers to share and learn strategies for improving and strengthening the systems, data and practices within a multi-tiered system of supports. Expect to learn about new programs, curricula, practices or activities that emphasize positive, research-based strategies for all of our students.
