The goal of a multi-tiered system of support process guide or manual is to support consistent implementation, and data-based decision-making and practices of districts’ MTSS framework. Do you need help developing an MTSS process guide to promote consistent practice? Or, would you like to improve your current process guide?
We know that high fidelity of implementation leads to improved student outcomes. It is essential for districts to have a well-defined MTSS framework in order to ensure fidelity of implementation. Many districts try to create a process guide or manual, but get stuck trying to figure out what needs to be included. CAREI has developed a model process guide that includes the necessary components of the framework, sample wording, resources and tools. Districts can use this guide to customize the implementation of MTSS in their own district.
CAREI is excited to offer two options to support district needs.
Option 1: Stand-Alone Process Guide
Teams can purchase the CAREI process guide and work at their own pace in developing their process guide.
Option 2: MTSS Process Guide with Technical Assistance
Join us for an 8-session (3 hours per session) professional learning series focused on providing step-by-step guidance on developing a process guide.
Learn about the latest evidence-based practices and practical tools to support data-based decision-making and implementation. This training also provides teams the opportunity to engage extensively with the CAREI model MTSS Process Guide (also referred to as an MTSS district manual). The CAREI model MTSS Process Guide is a highly useful tool as a template in helping teams reflect on their own practices and to guide their work around MTSS implementation practices.
This training will be delivered via Zoom from 1pm-4pm.

Who should participate? Administrators, instructional leaders, and MTSS teams
Teams should be prepared to engage in deep conversations about their school/district’s MTSS framework and compose substantial components of MTSS process guide. This course is most appropriate for teams that have a foundational understanding of MTSS and strong conceptual understanding of their school/district’s MTSS framework.
Teams in the initial stage of implementation or who are interested in strengthening their knowledge in core components of MTSS and firming up their MTSS framework should consider CAREI’s professional learning opportunity, Deep Dive into MTSS Essentials.
