Exploring the Intersection of Community Schools and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) CoP

♦ Looking to build school district and/or regional capacity to meet the needs of the whole child?

♦ Wondering how to better align and integrate an array of academic, social, emotional and behavioral interventions using a tiered intervention framework?

This Community of Practice will focus on the intersection of community schools and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS). In addition to our webinars focused on implementation of community schools, we will be conducting virtual learning meetings open to school districts and their community partners four times a year. Participants will have an opportunity to hear from regional partners implementing this framework, explore tools designed to assess effectiveness and efficiency of service delivery, and identify ways to build capacity for current and new initiatives.  See below!
