Led by the National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII); the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR); the Center on Response to Intervention at American Institutes for Research, and the National Center on Systemic Improvement (NCSI): Almost every state is implementing, developing, or planning some form of multi-tiered system of support (e.g., response to intervention, schoolwide positive behavioral interventions and supports) to intervene early and to improve outcomes for struggling students. A Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is a decision-making framework that integrates assessment and a continuum of instruction and intervention through which educators can make meaningful connections to accomplish the common goal of raising achievement for all students (learn more).
Through events and activities developed around the Connected Educator Month (CEM) Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) theme, we will highlight work from the National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII); the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability, and Reform (CEEDAR); the Center on Response to Intervention at American Institutes for Research and the National Center on Systemic Improvement (NCSI), among other resources, to support the implementation of MTSS and the essential components that make up an MTSS framework. Events will vary in focus from policies to professional development resources that are available. Check back soon to see the full list of events.
