What Participants Say
Dr. Olsen provided a lot of valuable information. When he was talking about the specifics of the the MTSS tiers, he said that it was important to remember that the tiers are not labels for kids (there is no such thing as a Tier 3 kid), rather they are levels of intensity in service and supports. He appreciate how he showed us what tangible things are done at each tier, and how he talked about the importance of addressing implicit bias in order for any of this valuable work to be effective! He talked about the importance of both quantitative and qualitative data in designing and evaluating our efforts.
