Family, School, and Community Partnering (FSCP): “On the Team and At the Table” Highlights Training

This is an abbreviated version of the full-day Stakeholder training. The purpose of the training is to learn how schools, families, and communities can partner in a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) to support positive academic, social, emotional, and behavioral outcomes for students. This training is open for education stakeholders, including family members, students, educators, school board members, and community members. Three sessions remain for spring 2014. Details will be posted throughout the upcoming months. 

Dates and locations for Fall 2014: TBD

For more information about the content of these FSCP trainings, please call 303-866-6876 or

Online Classes (Blackboard)

Our MTSS Online Academy courses are in process (during Spring 2014) via the Blackboard course management platform. This series of courses focuses on a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), which is defined as a:

Whole-school, data-driven, prevention-based framework for improving learning outcomes for EVERY student through a layered continuum of evidence-based practices and systems.
Although we do not anticipate offering any more courses until the fall of 2014, you may want to read the course descriptions in the flyer included below or this visit this link.
