• Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) Leadership Team (MLT)

    The purpose of the MTSS team is to ensure the sustainable implementation of district/school-wide usable innovations/initiatives. This is done with the use of Implementation Science and a Multi-Tiered System of Support framework. Basically, systems implementation work. 

    MTSS is a framework that helps educators, families, and students meet the academic and behavioral needs of all students. MTSS grew out of the integration of two other intervention-based frameworks: Response to Intervention (RTI) and Proactive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS). RtI and PBIS still exist, but under the umbrella of MTSS. 

    The Five Components of Colorado MTSS are Team-Driven Shared Leadership; Data-Based Problem Solving and Decision-Making; Family, School, and Community Partnering (FSCP); a Layered Continuum of Supports, and Evidence-Based Practices, which are the foundation for a sustainable system of support for the district.

    MTSS Leadership Team meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month during the school year via Zoom at 5:15 p.m. 

    The 2021-22 MTSS Leadership Team is Eileen Cahalane (kindergarten), Catherine Kolbet (secondary science), Ellen Metrick (middle school English), Robin Snyder (preschool), Kelly Webb (5th grade), Todd Bittner (Superintendent) and Sam Ryan (K-12 Princiapl). For questions or comments please reach out to team leads Ellen Metrick at ellen.metrick@norwoodk12.org or Catherine Kolbet at catherine.kolbet@norwoodk12.org.
