MTSS Integration into Site Based Professional Learning Communities (SCC 302/303)
We will discuss the relevance and process of bringing the MTSS framework and components into site grade level Professional Learning Communities. PLCs are a valuable venue of collaborating with other professionals and using relevant data to drive student outcomes through instructional changes, access to resources, data collection and progress monitoring.  PRJUSD has been trained on the Achievement Team Model to use during PLCs. Teachers are working towards creating success criteria and learning intentions across subject matter as aligned with CCSS. In addition, we are focused on using meaningful data analysis to drive instructional practices and strategies. Using the MTSS framework, PLC collaboration shifts focus from solely academic to seeing the needs of the entire child. Click Here for Session Handouts

Serving the Whole Child: Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) Priorities/Whole Child Resource Map Engagement Session (Part 1) (SCC - Room 202)
This first session will offer a mix of information and participant engagement on the LCFF/Whole Child Resource Map (https://www.cde.ca.gov/eo/in/lcff1sys-resources.asp).  The Resource Map provides resources and supports that local educational agencies (LEAs), schools, teachers, and families can use to support the needs of California’s diverse student population.

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. Participants will walk away from this presentation with a stronger understanding of how MTSS and LCAP can work in tandem to build stronger student-driven planning and budgeting.

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

Implementation Science as a Lens for the Planning and Implementation of MTSS for Districts and School Sites (SCC 312)
The implementation science model is a framework to integrate evidence-based programs into practice with fidelity and sustainability. This is a particularly important approach of taking a theoretical model and putting it into practice. Across our nation, many states have used the implementation science as an approach to facilitate the implementation MTSS.

     The implementation drivers of competency, organization and leadership are the main components identified to take theory into practice and build the capacity to create systems change. All three of the divers are particularly important for systems change and supporting school staff with the implementation of MTSS. Click Here for Session Handouts
