You’ve probably heard the saying, “You can’t intervene your way out of a Tier 1 problem.” This is certainly true, given that strong core instruction is the foundation of an effective MTSS framework.

It also raises an important question: Given limited resources, how can you best strengthen Tier 1 while also continuing to meet the needs of students receiving Tier 2 and 3 services?

View this edWebinar to explore key considerations and data to help answer this question—and to make the most of your MTSS in the new school year. Topics include:

  • How minor Tier 1 enhancements can have a major impact on student outcomes
  • The important role of environment in K–12 student learning
  • Why it’s essential to progress monitor your interventions, not just your students
  • How to use your data to make key decisions around resource allocation

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers, school leaders, district leaders, instructional coaches, and directors of assessment, MTSS, and special education.
