Implementing MTSS in middle and high school settings presents specific challenges due to the unique contexts of secondary schools. The main elements of MTSS may remain the same across grade levels, but they cannot just be transplanted from elementary to secondary. This session will provide participants with ideas and practical strategies for implementing MTSS in secondary schools, as well as real-life inspiration from secondary schools that have seen success.
