Using Data to Design Your MTSS-B Implementation
Facilitated by Heidi Cloutier, MSW
Established Universal MTSS-B teams can use the day as a team retreat to review their current discipline data (Office Discipline Referrals, absenteeism, academic data, dropouts, YRBS data) and develop a plan for addressing the most important needs for social skills development in the school. New teams or members who are exploring MTSS-B implementation can learn about the fundamentals and receive consultation regarding which tools to use and how to develop buy in.
Participants will have an opportunity to learn from each other and from schools that have had success with particularly difficult implementation issues. Registrants are encouraged to email areas to work on before the session. This session is ideal for teams that have been implementing MTSS-B for at least this school year, or for teams that want to revitalize their MTSS-B efforts.
Improving school climate and safety is important for creating a positive learning environment for all students. Schools that implement a system of effective behavioral and academic interventions and practices have better educational outcomes and staff satisfaction. MTSS-B is an evidence-based framework designed to transform school environments to become less reactive through the use of a team-based decision-making model and implementation of researchbased practices.
The MTSS-B framework consists of three levels— Tier 1 (Universal), Tier 2 (Behavioral Support), and Tier 3 (Intensive). Each level is designed to prevent problem behaviors and address the behavioral support needs of students at risk of school failure. Universal Teams develop the systems, structures, and practices for the delivery of schoolwide social supports for all students.
Who Should Attend
This retreat is for teams that are implementing school-wide or Universal Multi-Tiered Systems of Support for Behavioral Health and Wellness (MTSS-B) or exploring the feasibility of MTSS-B implementation.
