A Multi-level System Cycle of Improvement to Ensure Student Achievement (SCC 309)
Participants will see how the same cycle of improvement can be used at the individual student level, classroom level, grade level, school wide, department, and district levels to establish structures of support and resource allocation that ensure student success. In this system, student achievement data drives upward decision making, while the effects of those decisions drive resources downward, so that one cohesive system can be built to meet the needs of all students and ensure appropriate allocation of district and school resources. Participants will be able to see how their current resources and tools can be plugged in and effectively used as well as get ideas for tools and resources that may be missing from their organization. The learning outcome for this session is to understand the foundational steps of the cycle of improvement and understand how it fits with their current practices. Click Here for Session Handouts

LCAP & MTSS for Continuous Improvement (SCC 310)
This presentation will highlight the potential for continuous improvement through an alignment of the LCAP to the MTSS All/Some/Few framework. Instead of writing an LCAP that includes MTSS, a district should be creating an MTSS-aligned LCAP that draws on site-level data and implementation while setting overarching goals for the LEA. Our presentation will focus on how to put this theoretical alignment into practice, using the example of planning for counseling support and the ability to distinguish need and purpose of counseling to identify the best resource to support this. From there, Jannelle Kubinec will facilitate an activity illustrating how to operationalize the framework in district and school planning.

We're Not Ready for MTSS......What About a Pathway? (SCC 309)
The thought of MTSS Comprehensive Implementation can be overwhelming! Within this session, participants will learn how Indiana is adapting SWIFT TA Practices as entry points or Pathways to MTSS. While each Pathway (Teaming, Data, Design, Priorities Planning) leads to MTSS Comprehensive Implementation, it enhances commitment and engagement of local leaders, acknowledges district/school strengths and interests, and makes the work more feasible with early momentum. Pathways to MTSS are flexible, allowing districts/schools to seamlessly adjust their focus as new information arises or as goals are modified. Examples and resources pertaining to each Pathway from our work in Indiana will be shared. Click Here for Session Handouts

Going Deeper with Secondary MTSS (SCC 302/303)
In this session, we introduce the Inflexion Approach as a framework schools are using to implement California's Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) - a comprehensive framework that aligns academic, behavioral, and social-emotional learning in a fully integrated system of support for the benefit of all students.The Inflexion Approach is an organizational framework specifically designed to support schoolwide implementation efforts and to build learning communities that work for all students. The Approach articulates four connected elements - Identity, Structures, Learning Approaches, and a holistic definition of Student Readiness - critical to ensuring all students leave high school ready for success in their chosen postsecondary pathways. We believe that a clear, shared organizational identity informs the structuresneeded to support learning and empower readiness for all students. As part of the session, we provide examples of how secondary schools throughout California, Oregon, and Washington are approaching MTSS implementation using the Inflexion Approach.

All Means All: Special Education and MTSS (SCC 302/303)
MTSS affords schools the opportunity to create a supportive framework for all students to have their unique needs met within the academic, social-emotional and behavioral domains. Since all students are first, general education students, it is imperative that the stakeholders of the MTSS committees have a lens of how to support special education students as well. Through increased collaboration between general education and special education, we see the possibilities of exploring multi-access points within the Least Restrictive Environment to maximize the outcomes of all students. Shifts have included;  designing multiple entry points for students to access instruction, writing CCSS aligned grade level IEP goals, maximizing the use of accommodations, changing service delivery model for SpEd to include more time within general education with support and targeting high leverage skill deficits through effective intervention.
