Workshop Description

Many educators today are struggling due to the absence of working in an efficient and effective school improvement framework. If we want to improve outcomes for all students, educators must start by looking at their system. We need one highly effective "system" that is built to support the adults, so they can support the kids. The MTSS framework is the solution. MTSS is a framework to provide all students with the best opportunities to succeed academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally in school. MTSS focuses on providing high-quality instruction and intervention matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals. Data are used to allocate resources to improve student learning and support staff implementation of effective practices. - North Dakota MTSS

Come join us for a fun day of learning, reflection and planning around the key components of the MTSS framework!
