MTSS-B Universal Team Retreats
Fall 2018: MTSS-B Implementation Fidelity
When Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports for Behavioral Health and Wellness (MTSS-B) is implemented with fidelity, schools see increases in student achievement, attendance, and instructional time, and decreases in office discipline referrals, drug use, and emotional distress.
This retreat will focus on ensuring fidelity of implementation. Established teams may review current action plans and data (Office Discipline Referrals, absenteeism, academic data, dropouts, YRBS data, etc.), and new teams can learn about fundamentals and receive consultation regarding getting started, developing an action plan, and achieving buy-in.
Participants will have an opportunity to learn from each other and from schools that have had success with particularly difficult implementation issues. This session is ideal for teams that have been implementing for at least this school year, or for teams that want to revitalize their MTSS-B efforts.
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 a team-based decisionmaking model and implementation of research-based practices. The MTSS-B framework consists of three levels: Tier 1 (Universal), Tier 2 (Behavioral Support), and Tier 3 (Intensive); each 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.
