Sustainability is the Goal: Leading and Implementing Complex Change

With a charge to adopt, implement, and sustain MTSS systems in all 42 elementary schools, a district leadership team set about to assess organizational readiness and the knowledge, will, and skill of our leaders. This team developed a multi-year action plan to create a data-based culture and commitment to continuous improvement. In year two of implementation, enthusiasm for this effort has remained constant and early data indicators are encouraging.
