REMOTE WORKSHOP - Using the MTSS Framework to Establish and Sustain Comprehensive Student, Family, and Staff Supports during the COVID-19 Emergency

April 6th, 2020

Presenter: Paul Hyry-Dermith, Ed.D.

Time: 10am-12pm


Overview: While the current crisis has called upon district and school leaders to make rapid decisions and implement new systems for at-home academic learning, it also calls on leaders and support staff to develop systems for non-academic supports for students, families, and staff; this need is only likely to grow as the pandemic continues. This session will focus on the use of the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support Framework to deploy and align available resources to ensure that no student, family, or staff member falls through the cracks during this period, and that supplemental and intensive supports are available to those who need them. There will be ample time for small group discussion and for reviewing and planning with the tools available through BRYT’s online interactive COVID-19 MTSS map.
