Effects of MTSS Training on Nebraska School District Curriculum Selection

This session is from the NASP 2021 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 1,5
  • Skill Level: Introduction
  • Session 4: Assessment and Intervention in an RTI Framework

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. examine the relationship between MTSS training and curriculum selection practices of school districts.
  2. discuss ways to bridge the gap between MTSS training and MTSS implementation.
  3. reflect on how their own state- and district-level MTSS training practices affect school district practices.


Multitiered systems of support (MTSS) provides a framework encompassing evidence-based practices that provide a continuum of supports to all learners to promote success and positive academic outcomes. While sound MTSS training includes the promotion of selecting evidence-based curricula, the link between MTSS training and school curriculum selection is not fully understood. This study examines this relationship and will help researchers and practitioners reflect on bridging the gap between training and implementation.
