Kansas Inservice Training System Summer Institute
KITS has sponsored a Summer Institute in the past. The goals of the Summer Institute include:
- provide the opportunity for professional development,
- provide college credit hours (all participants must enroll and take for credit), and
- provide in-depth training on a focused topic.
Who Should Attend?
The Summer Institute is open to all people working with children in Kansas; but priority is given to those professionals working with children, birth to eight, who have disabilities.
