What We Believe

Effective teachers create environments where all students can learn and improve.

Effective schools maintain and communicate a purpose and direction that commit to high expectations for learning as well as shared values and beliefs about teaching and learning.

Effective systems support both teachers and students by outlining evidence-based instruction and interventions while ensuring appropriate access to resources and supports.

Continuous Improvement

NDMTSS recognizes that providing all students with the best opportunities to succeed academically and behaviorally requires a constant focus on improvement. This is done through needs assessment, planning, implementation, and evaluation. Like any school improvement process, the continuous improvement cycle empowers systems to effectively plan and implement initiatives while accumulating and analyzing data in order to apply necessary changes to improve practice.
