IL MTSS-N Network Capacity Coaches build relationships with district/school leadership and staff to effectively support equity-based MTSS. “Equity-based MTSS values and welcomes each and every student as a full member of their school and provides the support students need when needed, as long as needed” (SWIFT Education Center 2018). IL MTSS-N builds whole system capacity to provide academic, social-emotional, and behavioral support to improve whole child outcomes.  

The IL MTSS-N approach includes:

By partnering with the IL MTSS-N, you can expect:

  • Contextualized coaching

  • Professional learning including both virtual and face-to-face teaching and learning opportunities

WHAT does IL MTSS-N do? 

  • Our goal is to provide professional learning that builds leadership and changes adult practices to make a positive impact on student growth and outcomes.

  • We provide professional learning as  a continuum of tailored support: teaching and learning opportunities, coaching, and technical assistance.

    • Teaching and learning opportunities are designed to build educators’ knowledge, skills, and dispositions resulting in change of practices.

    • Coaching supports successful use of the knowledge and skills developed during training through collaborative partnerships. Coaching includes modeling, observation, reflective questioning, feedback, and individualized support for individuals or teams.

    • Technical Assistance (TA) provides specialized information and skills through consultation, problem-solving, and connection to resources. TA may include participation in a community of practice, networking, and coaches meetings online or in-person.

  • Our regionally based IL MTSS-N staff provide individualized services to build district and school capacity and sustainability through a process of gradual release. IL MTSS-N coaches work directly with district and school  leadership teams, coach(es), and teacher leaders.
