Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. design effective inservice trainings to improve educators’ supportive attitudes toward EBPs in MTSS for optimal student outcomes.
  2. intervene in different attitudinal dimensions of teachers to enhance their implementation outcomes of EBPs in MTSS.
  3. explain the relationships among school leadership, climate, and educators’ attitudes toward evidence-based practices (EBPs) on individual and school levels.


This multilevel study deciphered relationships among school leadership, climate, and teacher attitudes towards evidence-based practices (EBPs). Learn how teachers’ attitudes develop and change via experiential appraisals of school-level climate and leadership and how to devise interventions or trainings to enhance school-wide implementation fidelity, student outcomes and cost-effectiveness of EPBs within MTSS.
