SolutionWhere - Mathematics
**ATTENTION: The MTSS in Mathematics K-2 (addition and subtraction) has been updated to include grades 3 and 4 (multiplication and division) because of grants funds that came available. Please refer to the K-4 flyer for updated information.***
MTSS in Mathematics is meant to support teams of K-2 teachers and an interventionist to implement MTSS for addition and subtraction in the early elementary. Topics focus on an classroom instructional framework, progress monitoring of student strategies, diagnostic assessment, and small-group interventions for students who need further support.
Because a successful MTSS program includes coherent instructional foci for students in all tiers, we invite teams of teachers to collaborate in this professional learning experience. Teams are made up of K-2 classroom teachers (one of each) along with the interventionist who works with those teachers’ students.
