Become an MTSS Champion: Improving Schools by Improving Systems

Student behavioral challenges continue to be one of the biggest sources of stress within a school community. Learn how to align strategies and improve student behavior and relationships by using a Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) approach with a focus on prevention and responding effectively. MTSS is a data driven decision-making framework for establishing the social, culture, academic and behavioral supports needed for a school to be an effective learning environment for all. 

OSSE is inviting school teams, representative of the school (all grades/departments, including an administrator) to join our team of early adopters of “MTSS Champions: Improving Schools by Improving Systems.” As a member of the cohort of early adopters, teams will:

  • Receive administrative pre-training webinars with a focus on organizing resources to implement MTSS and aligning multiple initiatives within a multi-tiered framework
  • Two days of team professional learning and facilitated action planning
  • On-going coaching support
  • Learning walks and observations from external coaches to provide support and feedback to strengthen implementation fidelity and guide action planning. 

All support will be anchored to a valid and reliable measure of fidelity, the Tiered Fidelity Inventory. Space and resources are limited and priority for the full cohort participation will be offered to those schools with a representative school team that includes an administrator. Schools without this will be permitted to join the two-day Team Professional Learning and Facilitated Action Planning workshop if space is available.
