Making What Matters Happen: Leading with MTSS

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Improving student outcomes starts with creating environments within which personnel feel safe to take risks.  A key lever to successful implementation of a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) is effective school wide leadership. The buy in for MTSS, both at the district and school levels, is often hindered by the belief that it is yet another initiative, rather than an evidenced based approach that uses a data-driven continuous improvement process to integrate academic, behavioral and social emotional instruction and intervention. MTSS is not another thing, it IS the thing!  Participants will walk away with a renewed feeling of why effective leadership and attitude matters in what you do on a daily basis, regardless of what comes your way.  Remember:  Work should be fun!
