Even with a strong foundation of Tier 1 strategies, some learners in K-8 programs will need additional support. Multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) provide a framework for supporting student behavior in a preventative and strengths-based way. This webinar will focus on Tier 2 strategies, including Check In/Check Out, Self Monitoring, and other easy to implement practices. Join us and learn how to create plans for supporting students in your classroom or program! 

1. Discuss several Tier 2 strategies and how to use these in your classroom to support specific learners. 
2. Create plans for the implementation of realistic Tier 2 strategies in your classroom. 
3. Review and develop methods for assessing Tier 2 strategies to determine their effectiveness.
