Using Data to Design Your MTSS-B Implementation
When Multi-tiered Systems of Supports for Behavioral Health and Wellness is implemented with fidelity, schools see an increase in student achievement, attendance, and instructional time, and decreases in office discipline referrals, drug use, and emotional distress.
This retreat will focus on discipline, staff buy-in, and youth and family engagement in the MTSS-B process. The day is balanced to allow established Universal MTSS-B teams to review their current discipline data (Office Discipline Referrals, absenteeism, academic data, dropouts, YRBS data) and develop or work on their action 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 getting started, developing an action plan, and achieving buy-in.
Participants will have an opportunity to learn from byeach 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 to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
