The District Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) Implementation Grant Application is now live!

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a framework for enhancing the adoption and implementation of a continuum of evidence-based practices to achieve important outcomes for every student. The MTSS framework builds on a public health approach that is preventative and focuses on organizing the efforts of adults within systems to be more efficient and effective. MTSS helps to ensure students benefit from nurturing environments and equitable access to universal instruction and supports that are culturally and linguistically responsive, universally designed, and differentiated to meet their unique needs.

The District Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) Implementation Grant Application is now live! This is an exciting opportunity that provides intensive support for the implementation of an integrated MTSS framework. Please take a moment to watch the video below to get more information about the grant.
