One School’s Story
Two teams of grade-level elementary educators participated in the MTSS Process for SEL along with their support team (school community members who could provide insight and offer help implementing interventions).
At the first meeting, the teams completed the Phase 1 screener for their entire class. Based on those results, each educator chose a Tier 1 intervention strategy for SEL skill building with their entire class. Three weeks later, at the second meeting, teams identified students who needed more support and completed the Phase 2 screener. Then, with the help of the support team, educators implemented Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions. Nine weeks after their first meeting, the educators repeated the Phase 1 screener.
Even in that short time, their assessment revealed significant gains in all four foundational skill areas.
