A research- and evidence-based playbook for creating MTSS in schools

In In Support of Students: A Leader's Guide to Equitable MTSS, a team of distinguished educators delivers a comprehensive and insightful discussion of how to create evidence-based and equitable multi-tiered systems (MTSS). In the book, you'll find the practical tips and tools you need to support the implementation and redesign of systems that meet the needs of all learners.

The author go beyond conceptual theories and frameworks and readers grounded, hands-on advice for developing MTSS that provide opportunities for students to learn at high levels while retaining equitable feelings of belonging and hope. The book also provides:
* Real-life examples and planning procedures to implement MTSS in a variety of school environments
* Strategies for building MTSS in ways that combat educator burn-out, overwork, and overwhelm
* An actionable toolkit to put MTSS into practice and improve student outcomes

An indispensable resource for K-12 school leaders and administrators, In Support of Students will also prove invaluable to policymakers, university staff, and regional support providers.
