This summer, the Office of Public Instruction hosted our agency's largest annual conference, the Summer Institute, at Montana State University. For over 20 years, the OPI has brought educators from all across Montana together for educational seminars which promote professional development for the benefit of students. Each year, over a thousand teachers and administrators gain skills to implement multi-tiered systems of student support while incorporating data and technology. Topics included:

  • Continuous school improvement
  • Culturally responsive practices
  • Family and community engagement
  • Health and physical education
  • Mental health strategies
  • School safety
  • Assessment
  • Data and technology integration
  • Counseling and instructional strategies

The conference is organized by Jenifer Cline from the OPI's Student Support Services Division. Jenifer has worked in the Special Education field for 19 years at the local, state, and national level. Thank you for your leadership and commitment to student support, Jenifer!
