Social-Emotional Behavioral ScreeningPosted on: June 9, 2021
Michigan's MTSS Technical Assistance Center is continuously working to improve the professional learning and assistance it provides to support the implementation of a Multi-Tiered System of Support aimed at ensuring equitable and effective outcomes for all students. The combined impact of physical, mental, and economic stressors of COVID-19, as well as the health toll of racism on communities of color, underscores a great need for addressing the social-emotional-behavioral and academic needs of all students.
The document "Reframing a Screening Process to Promote Safe and Inclusive Learning Environments that Support Each and Every Learner" focuses on components to support the whole child while working to create effective environments that are positive, safe, equitable, and inclusive. This document is intended to provide general information and creates a foundation for future guidance that will include more details on how to implement these recommendations along with examples and tools.

Intensifying Literacy Instruction: Essential PracticesPosted on: February 10, 2021
MDE and the MiMTSS Technical Assistance Center are pleased to announce the release of the document, "Intensifying Literacy Instruction: Essential Practices!" This document focuses on the advanced tiers of an MTSS framework (Tiers 2 and 3); however, it can and should impact Tier 1, class-wide instruction since an effective Tier 1 instruction supports all learners regardless of their pressing needs. This document describes five practices and considerations for understanding how students' learning and behavior are enhanced.
