Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) and Response to Intervention (RtI) models are being adopted and implemented at schools throughout Maryland and across the U.S. This workshop will provide participants with frameworks and practical ideas for ensuring these models promote an inclusive educational experience for students with intensive support needs.
Participants will gain insights and learn new approaches to a variety of topics, from active engagement in Tier 1 with Common Core State Standards to monitoring progress and documenting learning of general curriculum. Examples will highlight students who participate in the alternate assessment.
