2021 NDMTSS Virtual Conference | June 8-9, 2021



After more than a year of large-scale disruption on several fronts, schools need time to stop and consider everything that has been learned about the ability and effectiveness of their systems to support ALL students academically, socially, emotionally, and behaviorally in school…and at times, from a distance!
Presenters will challenge participants to consider how those lessons learned can help to refocus our efforts and plans for next year and emerge with stronger systems heading into next year!
Join us to reframe our thinking as we get back on track with the important work of creating systems that support ALL kids! We are excited to welcome educators from across ND back together after a COVID break – so gather your team, get registered, and join us LIVE to hear from national experts and collaboration partners.

Behavior Interventions to Support All Tiers - Enhancing FBAs/BIPs

In a strong multi-tiered system of supports, we are looking to support children at all levels and abilities when it comes to their academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs. When a student’s behavior is getting in the way of success in other areas of their education school personnel can bring a team of professionals together (school counselor, school psychologist, teachers, administrators) to collaborate and determine what the best next steps are to help get students back on the road to success.
