Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) promote academic and behavioral achievement through frequent progress monitoring, ongoing data collection and analyses, and evidence-based intervention for students who need it. Yet all too often, only academic formative assessments are used to identify struggling students and inform supports. Assessments to measure students’ social-emotional competencies are used far less often, which can leave educators wondering about the “why” behind students’ academic and behavior struggles.

In this information-packed webinar, presented by Dr. Stephen Kilgus, Associate Professor of School Psychology, University of Wisconsin-Madison and Dr. Patti Wilson, RTI2 Coordinator at Clarksville-Montgomery County School System (CMCSS) in Tennessee, learn:

  • How PBIS and SEL fit within MTSS and work together to support students’ broader mental health
  • How behavior screening and progress monitoring can facilitate overall MTSS efforts to improve student achievement
  • Specific measures that can be used as the foundation of social-emotional and behavioral assessment
  • How educators at CMCSS are using combined academic and behavior data to better inform instruction and interventions

Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance your understanding of the role social-emotional behavior screening and intervention has in building a robust MTSS that addresses the learning needs of the whole child.
