Course Overview

This course will guide you through tiers of support in academics, social-emotional, and behaviors to meet the needs of the student serviced within schools.  This includes the use of Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) to identify universal (all students), targeted (some), and intensive (few) resources and interventions. Participants will learn to use a continuous-improvement framework in which data-based problem solving and decision-making is practiced across all levels of the educational system for supporting students.

Warm Feedback 

This framework is something I will seek more learning on independently. I have always believed in the power of words and found this incredibly helpful. All of the "Extend your Learning" pieces for this course were phenomenal!

I really enjoyed all the extra materials you had selected. The course was very clear and gave me a good understanding of what MTSS is. I have been able to use my presentation at work and it was successful! Thanks very much.
