The Mississippi State Personnel Development Grant (MS-SPDG) supports the development and expansion of effective, positive learning environments in Mississippi through implementation of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). By improving the subject-matter knowledge and evidence-based practices of special and general education teachers, school and district administrators, university faculty, agency staff, and State department of education personnel, the MS-SPDG facilitates achievement of the Mississippi College and Career Readiness Standards by students with and without disabilities within a Multi-tiered System of Support. This work is conducted within an evidence-based professional development model, relying on both process and outcome data to drive decisions.
