The purpose of this project is to develop an infrastructure for implementing the Colorado Multi-Tiered System of Supports (CO-MTSS) at multiple levels by creating models of successful implementation that can be scaled up across the State. CO-MTSS will help positively impact student outcomes by creating capacity for an integrated academic and behavior support system that can be implemented with fidelity and sustained over time, utilizing data-based decision making at all levels of implementation.
To achieve this purpose, the CO-MTSS project has five goals: (a) increase State leadership capacity for CO-MTSS implementation; (b) increase regional and district leadership capacity for CO-MTSS implementation and sustainability; (c) increase preschool-12, school level capacity for CO-MTSS through the implementation of evidence-based practices, data-based problem solving, and short-cycle action planning; (d) improve teacher performance in the classroom; and (e) increase family, school, and community partnering.
