Using MTSS for Secondary Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Based on our partnership work with schools throughout California, Oregon, and Washington, facilitators from EPIC School Partnerships (ESP) will provide innovative examples of secondary MTSS implementation. This session will include interviews with educators implementing some of this work and will also give participants the opportunity to hear from and interact with others in the room. ESP facilitators will also give participants the opportunity to think about how student outcomes are defined in their MTSS work using Dr. Conley’s Four Keys to College and Career Readiness – a framework developed so that students, families, and educators can identify and prioritize what skills are needed to be successful after high school. In its simplest form, we refer to the Four Keys as Think, Know, Act, Go. In other words, students ready to be lifelong learners have the ability to THINK deeply about what they are doing; KNOW contextually why they learn; ACT purposefully to achieve their goals; and GO successfully through life’s transitions.
