Elephant in Your Room: Interventions Improving School Culture for MTSS (MS035)

Tuesday, February 26, 2019
12:00 PM–1:50 PM

  • PMD: 5
  • Skill Level: Intermediate

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn the essentials of school cultural variables that inhibit or facilitate the success of MTSS/RtI.
  2. examine self-assessments of school culture that can lead to organizational intervention
  3. learn the components of an evidence-based organizational intervention and practice one with feedback


School culture eats MTSS/RTI for breakfast. Results of implementation of MTSS/RTI have shown mixed to poor results, and some practitioners are becoming discouraged. However, when effective implementation has occurred, MTSS has been embedded within a receptive school culture that actively supports its use. This mini-skills session gives seasoned practitioners an evidence-based organizational intervention and access to a free skills development resource. Participants will practice one component and receive feedback.

Convention session locations are only viewable for convention attendees. Locations will be available/visible Monday, February, 25 2019.
