The Time is Now: Equity Leadership and Multi-Tiered System of Support–a Better Tomorrow
U.S. schools and districts have an imperative to change the fabric of our nation by fully serving all students, especially those populations who have been systematically marginalized for generations, to reach their highest potential. This imperative is no longer just rhetoric, but a viable course of action. We can be responsive to the full range of student needs by using intentional school leadership development and coaching to implement and sustain an equity-based Multi-Tiered System of Support. Additionally, we must strengthen district leadership capacity to support implementation and sustain these transformations in schools. This approach to MTSS involves creating equitable learning environments and cultures that match resources to student need for better outcomes. This session will highlight the key components inherent in creating this systemic and vital approach to developing educational leaders whose schools serve all students as they learn and grow.
