This webinar will highlight the core features of MTSS-B, focusing on examples, tools, and practices that support students and staff, and explore how MTSS-B is helping schools reducing discipline issues, improve academic success, and create environments where students and staff thrive. Who Should Attend: Teachers, special educators, administrators, parents, school counselors, behavioral specialists, and related professionals are encouraged to attend and explore your questions about what MTSS-B is and how to implement it effectively.
Presented by JoAnne Malloy, this taped webinar highlights how one school district in NH's Safe Schools/Healthy Students project worked with its local mental health center to build capacity to serve children and youth with mental health concerns. The webinar describes how the district used the framework for blending of PBIS and School Mental Health supports, called the Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF), to implement evidence-based mental health practices in a middle school.
