Limited Capacity filling up

Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) is an every-education decision-making framework of evidence-based practices in instruction and assessment that addresses the academic and social-emotional-behavioral needs of all students. It is also a central feature of Iowa’s Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) plan. Iowa’s ESSA plan includes a focus on Conditions for Learning, which focuses on school safety, quality of relationships, established and practiced norms and values, and the physical environment within which all school activities and interactions occur. This session will focus on how Conditions for Learning and MTSS work in Iowa’s ESSA plan as well as what the practical implications are for educators. Specifically, topics that will be addressed include: (a) a brief overview of Conditions for Learning and MTSS in Iowa’s ESSA plan; (b) how MTSS, as part of a larger, integrated Learning Supports structure, provides a continuum of evidence-based academic and social-emotional-behavioral supports to all students using data-based decision making; 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.
