Launch MTSS―and your students―into success. MTSS is complex. Without correct implementation and evaluation, schools struggle to do it well and students can be negatively impacted in the process. With the guidance provided in this book, however, you can start on the path to equitable access and opportunities for all students to achieve. In this hands-on guide the authors, nationally recognized MTSS experts, have laid out a clear, ten-step action plan for implementing a truly effective MTSS framework at your school. You’ll understand the why, what, and how of MTSS, as well as how to audit and align your current practices, structures, and interventions in order to support all students. This guide provides: directions for conducting an objective audit of your existing MTSS; 10 essential indicators of MTSS implementation; practitioner tools and tips for initiating MTSS; instructions for using elements of continuous school improvement to ensure that what you are doing is working. With full-sized templates, tools for implementation, and reflection prompts throughout, this book is designed to help you launch MTSS―and your students―into success.
