When: March 23, 2023 Webinar
Time: 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. (Pacific Time)
Traditional Multi-Tiered Systems of Support models focus narrowly on a single aspect of children's well-being and functioning (e.g., academic); failing to ensure that each student receives what they need socially, emotionally, and academically.
Integrated MTSS(I-MTSS), on the other hand, is a holistic and comprehensive as it involves the careful integration a continuum of social-emotional, behavioral, and academic supports to ensure each student is able to access the experiences and supports they need to be well, engage fully in their learning experiences, and develop competencies that enable school and life success.
This webinar will provide strategies, tools, and resources founded in implementation science to support a Human-Centered Approach to Integrated MTSS Implementation in your system.
Registration fee: $75.00 per participant
