Multi-Tiered System of Support

This workshop series is designed to support staff navigating the MTSS structure.  Discussions around struggling students, evidence based practices and strategies will be explored.  Specifically, participants will understand the three tiers of support and learn how to implement these supports with fidelity.  Progress monitoring, data collection and case studies will be explored.  The district DCAP will also be unpacked as another tool for staff and students alike.
