Multi-Tiered Support System (MTSS)

Multi-Tiered Support System (MTSS) is a comprehensive framework that blends academic and behavioral supports. This professional development will provide educators a common understanding of an integrated MTSS that blends Response to Intervention (RTI) and Positive Behavior Intervention Strategy (PBIS). This project builds on the success of several Maine schools and offers ongoing statewide technical assistance. Throughout the sessions, essential components of the MTSS framework will be explored. This knowledge gained, along with supporting tools, will aid teams in developing their own MTSS framework. This process will respond to the academic and behavioral needs of all students. We are asking each participating school to have teams of three or four, one of which MUST be a principal. The principal will be required to attend the FIRST session for two days and the LAST session of one day in May. Session 1 January 15 & 16, 2020 Jeff's Catering, Brewer
