About This Event

Providing a continuum of social-emotional learning is critical to effectively implementing a comprehensive Social-Emotional Wellness Model. A multitiered system of supports (MTSS) encompasses the continuum of student need, enabling schools to provide a range of data-driven, tiered strategies to address the social, emotional, behavioral, and mental health development of all students.  A systemic and educative integrated SEL response within the MTSS framework requires multiple components. Two foundational elements include investing in educators’ knowledge and awareness SEL development, helping to ensure conditions of learning are addressed. The second element is to examine the connection between SEL and the conditions for learning. 

  • Learn how to examine tier 1 SEL supports and discuss ways to strengthen universal supports.
  • Examine tier 2 and 3 SEL supports for individual students, including identification practices and the referral process for these students. 
  • Identify best practices of SEL tiered supports and interventions within each of the three tiers of the MTSS framework.
