SCHOOL COUNSELORS FOR MTSS
We work with educators to align/integrate culturally sustaining MTSS and school counseling programs to meet the needs of ALL students.
We focus our writing and research on multi-tiered systems of support for school counselors for the following reasons:
PURPOSE * EFFICACY * CAPACITY * EQUITY * COLLABORATION
The School Counselor's Guide to MTSS
This book provides an overview of the what and the why behind the alignment of school counseling programs and MTSS. Written by school counselor educators and school counselors, it provides ample examples of alignment across universal, tier 2/3 evidence based practices, data, and collaboration strategies.
Making MTSS Work
Making MTSS Work provides the how to MTSS. Using examples from school districts across the country, the authors outline best practices in alignment to ensure school counselors work smarter not harder.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
We started with chapter 1. I can't tell you how thrilled I was and, in fact, I almost cried (really). This one discussion was what I have hoped to do every year for the last 23 years and it happened today.
This book changed the way I approach my work as a school counselor. It provides excellent ways in which to align what we already do with others in the building.
My school counseling team was able to advocate for our role in MTSS in a way we never have before. I can't tell you what that means to me and to us. Not only that, but our admins were excited by the discussion and look forward to next week's meeting AND they suggested we create an action plan/next steps at the end of every discussion!
