MTSS Workshop Series Information

MO-CASE is presenting a series of workshop sessions to help school districts establish a viable Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS).  This is a repeat of the workshop series offered during the 2016-17 school year. 

The workshop series will consist of three full day sessions during the fall of 2017 - September 8, October 20 & November 17, 2017. Each session will be held at the MSBA building in Columbia, Missouri.

Dr. Kaye Otten and Beth Wood will facilitate and guide the sessions.  They are both accomplished practioners, who have successful experience coaching districts in development and implementation of plans for MTSS.  Both academic and behavior intervention will be addressed in each session, as part of a comprehensive plan.

These are work sessions, not sit and get.  While brief presentations to help set the context and parameters of the work will occur, the outcome for each session is for districts to complete part of a written plan for a viable MTSS. 

 Learning outcomes and plan components include:

·       Class-wide preventative intervention in general education;

·       Universal screening;

·       Progress monitoring including expected rate of improvement;

·       Data-based action triggers and decision making cut points;

·       Tiers of differentiated evidence- based intervention, including intensive intervention;

·       Fidelity of implementation.

Districts who participate must already be committed to these outcomes. While details of plans will vary from district to district, the structure of the plans should be consistent with MTSS guidance documents that MO-CASE has adopted, Missouri PBIS, and Missouri DESE requirements for Response to Intervention.

Participants must be part of a district team, with a 3 to 1 ratio of general educators to those associated with special education.  Teams must include a district-level staff member who can commit district resources and direct district implementation of plans.

Districts who are just beginning the process, AND those who are well along and already implementing a system are encouraged to apply. The total fee for the series (three full day sessions, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.) is $900* per district team.  Teams may include up to 5 members. 

NOTE: Districts who participated last year will not be charged to attend this year. 

In order to ensure common understanding of expectations for this series an application process has been developed.  If your district is interested in participating this year, please complete and submit the application the attached application as indicated.  To facilitate planning for the series, please submit applications by August 1, 2017.
