The Iowa Department of Education has long been dedicated to the work of multi-tiered learning supports, the wide range of strategies, programs, services, and practices that are necessary to create conditions that enhance students learning in academics, social-emotional-behavioral well-being, and mental health. Since 2014, two federal SEA grants to make schools safer and increase youth and children’s access to mental health services and supports have been central to that work: Project AWARE and the School Climate Transformation Grant. This session will focus on lessons learned through these grants. Specifically, topics that will be addressed include: (a) stories of successful implementation of learning support systems from Iowa schools (b), an overview of strategies improving and maintaining a positive school climate that promotes student academic and social-emotional-behavioral well-being, and (c) what resources and supports will be in place across the state to supports educators. Attendees will engage in collaborative conversations with session facilitators and each other, develop key take-aways from the session to inform their planning and practice, and access information about these topics during and after the session.
