MAISD and local schools, districts earn state recognition for student support systems

STANTON — Michigan educators work tirelessly on behalf of learners and do so much that is worthy of celebration and acknowledgment. The Michigan Multi-Tiered System of Support (MiMTSS) Technical Assistance Center engages in a recognition process as one way to shine a positive light on work happening within the state related to implementing an MTSS framework to meet the needs of all learners.

The implementation of a MTSS is a priority of the Michigan Department of Education (MDE). In alignment with this priority, the MDE and Michigan’s MTSS Technical Assistance Center have developed a process for identifying and recognizing ISDs, districts, and schools that are demonstrating strong outcomes and/or making progress related to meeting the needs of each and every learner through a multi-tiered framework.

Recently, the MiMTSS Technical Assistance Center recognized Montcalm Area Intermediate School District (MAISD) at the Gold Level for its work toward supporting our local educators in Montcalm County to implement a MTSS.

By implementing MTSS, our schools increase consistency of effective instruction, build staff knowledge and skills to equitably support all learners, use data to proactively identify and provide support for students, and create a positive culture that nurtures relationships with students, their families, and our communities. This strong foundation helps learners gain the skills needed to realize their life dreams.
