School and district leaders can build a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) to address disproportionality. To support your efforts, Catapult Learning cordially invites you to a webinar featuring Dr. Edward Fergus to explore how to mitigate the risk of disproportionality through key aspects of MTSS implementation plans.
While this webinar is geared toward districts that have been cited for disproportionality, all districts will benefit from learning how to be proactive and ensure their MTSS is built to comply with regulatory requirements, and thus avoid citation.
During this 45-minute complimentary session, you will:
- Learn effective MTSS components to address racial/ethnic disproportionality in special education and discipline
- Explore the discrepancies between goals and implementation
You will also learn how targeted workshops and job-embedded coaching with Catapult Learning can help your district foster regulatory compliance and ensure all students have the opportunity to succeed.
Q&A will follow the 45-minute session. After the session, attendees will have the opportunity to book a complimentary consultation with Dr. Fergus.
