FY21 IDEA Targeted for the period March 19, 2021 to August 31, 2021 in the amount of $5,645.00. Grant SC21165.

Description: This grant will support professional development in the effective implementation of Student Support Teams (SSTs) and the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS), an approach which utilizes an array of assessments to construct a picture of the whole child, including their cultural background and past experience. Through the use of a comprehensive array of tiered interventions targeted to each student's individual profile, we will be able to prevent the inappropriate referral of students to Special Education and ensure equity for members of marginalized subgroups.
