Support Overview

Support Overview

The TA Center is offering specialized professional learning to partnership districts.

Specialized Professional Learning is designed to build knowledge, skills, and capacity within a particular area of focus. The purpose of specialized professional learning opportunities is to provide districts and/or schools with a menu of specific learning opportunities that can be accessed locally (e.g., in a time and format of the site’s choosing) and contextualized for their setting. Specialized MTSS professional learning for partnership districts is intended to  align with needs and priorities identified by the site to accelerate student outcomes. 

Each partnership district engaged in the specialized professional learning will have the support of the MiMTSS TA Center staff to help:

  • Orient administrators, teachers, and staff to the scope of MTSS learning and implementation supports that will be accessible.
  • Coordinate the scheduling and timing of MTSS professional learning.
  • Develop the knowledge and abilities of those identified to coach people who are participating in professional learning.

Co-Constructing the Professional Development Plan

The MiMTSS TA Center, the partnership district, and the ISD contact will work together to design the professional learning schedule. A part of the co-design work will include:

  • Identifying implementation support roles for classroom coaching and coaching teaming structures for MTSS efforts.
  • Identifying a minimum number of educators to participate in the learning to prevent over-extending district and school staff working to implement existing district priorities.
  • Developing a professional learning schedule that considers days already identified for staff development per the negotiated teacher contract.
  • Determining the best time for identified staff and teams to participate in professional learning.
  • Aside from time allocated for professional learning, identified the meeting time when anticipated people attending the professional learning will develop shared resources to implement in classrooms, discuss successes, and address challenges.
  • Identified the names of the individuals who will provide coaching support to teachers and staff to implement what was learned during the training session(s).
