In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many schools are looking to create, maintain, or reinforce their current education system by utilizing an equitable Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework.
To support schools in this work, the Illinois MTSS Network is offering two online professional learning opportunities. MTSS features and components will be introduced and examined throughout these learning network offerings by focusing on essential elements and coaching. By connecting in a Learning Network to examine best practices, reflect on current practice, and gather insights on possible revisions of practice, participants will grow professionally and help strengthen their current school or district's MTSS framework, policies, and procedures.
A Multi-Tiered System of Supports is a framework for continuous improvement that is systemic, prevention-focused, and data-informed, providing a coherent continuum of supports responsive to meet the needs of ALL learners.
