Multi-tiered Systems of Support Community of Practice’s 1st meeting

February 28, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

| Free

What: Learn and develop Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS) frameworks that inclusively support all students. By joining this MTSS Community of Practice; designed and lead by you, facilitated and supported by MAIER‘s Research Associate, Dr. Anica Miller Rushing, and University of Southern Maine’s Dr. Rachel Brown-Chidsey, you increase your ability to leverage both Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtI²)(focused on academics) and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS)(focused on social and emotional learning), in order to organize supports within a classroom so that both the academic side and the social-emotional-learning side are aligned to serve the whole child.

Who: K-12 classroom educators are the target audience, but others that work with youth in various learning environments are welcome.

Why: Effective classrooms need to consider both academic and social-emotional contexts. MTSS encourages educators to set up frameworks for considering both aspects so that all learners are supported more inclusively, authentically, and effectively. By using MTSS you are centering the whole child as part of your practice, and doing so more efficiently and proactively.
