North Dakota’s Multi-Tier System of Supports (NDMTSS) is a framework to provide all students with the best opportunities to succeed academically and behaviorally in school. NDMTSS focuses on providing high-quality instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals. Data are used to allocate resources to improve student learning and support staff implementation of effective practices.
"It clarified the MTSS process to me and it gave my team an action plan with which to start the process at our school." [Building Your Systems]
"We know that our support system has weaknesses. But this training gave us a way to systematically approach the task of assessing where those weakness are exactly." [Building Your Systems]
"Because of this training we have implemented uniform pathways in math and reading for all students in grades 1-10 in ALL of our buildings!"
"We are a better school for having gone through this training. It has gone from "my kids" to "our kids" approach."
"Wayne helped us deliver the "message" of MTSS to our HS staff, refined our plans for the upcoming school year and assess the strategies at the elementary school."
"This training transformed my job description... and I'm SO THANKFUL for that!"
"We've made lots of positive changes in our middle school. Now, we can focus on beefing up our core instead of always trying to catch those intensive kids, because we know their needs are already being met. Yay!"

Director of Teaching & Learning
In-depth study of the essential components associated with implementation of a school-wide Multi-Tiered Systems of Support approach. Primary focus will be given to the development and use of elements used as part of a three-tier instructional model including the establishment of:
Implementing and sustaining MTSS in middle and high schools. Specific information for establishing tiered support structures within the secondary framework will be provided, with particular emphasis on tier I. Examples of data systems for universal screening and progress monitoring will be identified. Specific Reading and Math interventions (that really work) and examples of successful secondary MTSS models will be discussed. Participants will receive several tools useful for implementing MTSS at the secondary level, including Placement Pathways for Reading, Math and "Good Standing"; CBMs for secondary schools; and an MTSS Implementation Checklist.
Building administrators will invite team members based on their roles, expertise, leadership abilities and authority to make school and district decisions (budgeting, schedules, course offerings, PD)
