CAREI Webinar: Five MTSS/RTI Headaches (and how to ease the pain)

Join us for this free webinar! | Presented by Kim Gibbons and the CAREI Team

While implementing an MTSS/RTI framework has been shown to improve outcomes for students, it’s not always as easy as it sounds. If your district has been on or is starting this journey, you’ve probably experienced some implementation headaches.

Do you regularly hear staff talk about how overloaded they feel? Do you wonder if what you are doing is effective? Do you have more data than you know what to do with?

If you are starting to feel overwhelmed, attend this free webinar to learn about some remedies to the most common headaches.

We will discuss five MTSS implementation challenges and provide you with some practical tools to start tackling them.
