Multi-Tiered System of Support Cohort

Tue, Apr 11, 2023  9:00am - 3:30pm

Multi-Tiered System of Support Cohort


The New Hampshire Association of School Principals (NHASP) and the New Hampshire Association of Special Education Administrators (NHASEA) are proudly co-sponsoring a year-long professional learning cohort intended to support the growing behavioral needs our schools are experiencing. The cohort will utilize a Multi-Tiered System of Support framework to assess, refine, and improve upon current behavioral and social emotional supports and practices.

The goal of the work will be to develop a thorough understanding of the research-based critical elements of MTSS B, be able to articulate how each element manifest at the optimizing level of implementation, ensure a clear vision and common understanding of the work, measure your districts practices on each of the critical elements, and develop action plans for next steps in implementation. The learning, assessment, and plan development will provide an opportunity to personalize the experience of each district team based on where the district is in their implementation of MTSS B.

Attendees are invited to bring a district, or school-based team composed of general/special educators and leaders who have genuine interest in MTSS B, as well as the capacity to influence stages of implementation.


Session Dates:

Rescheduled to December 07 - October 4th and October 5, 2022 - 9:00am - 3:30pm: The cohort will begin with a two-day kick-off where the teams will delve into the critical elements of MTSS and understand how each element progresses from emerging to optimizing levels of implementation. The group will build a common understanding and each team will identify their vision for MTSS. The essential elements to be explored include: Establishing Readiness, Leadership, Capacity/Infrastructure, Communication and Collaboration, Problem-Solving Framework, Tiered Instruction, and Data Practices.

December 7, 2022 - 9:00am - 3:30pm: Teams will utilize the essential elements to reflect on and assess their practices. Each team will engage in an inventory of practices to identify strengths, needs, and opportunities for growth. The assessment framework can be taken back to school teams to engage in a similar assessment process.

February 7, 2023 - 9:00am - 3:30pm: Teams will review their essential element assessment and perform a SWOT analysis. Through a SWOT analysis and problems of practice activity, the group will discuss common challenges, success, and solutions in MTSS B implementation. Teams will begin to identify areas of focus and next steps in their implementation.

April 11, 2023 - 9:00am - 3:30pm: Teams will develop a growth plan for their MTSS B implementation that will
include short-term and long-term goals and objectives, benchmarks, review cycles, and communication and resource maps.
