The Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center School Mental Health Team will be presenting at the first  Virtual AWSP & WASA Conference + Summer Pre-Conference 2020!


Great news, the AWSP/WASA Summer Conference pre-conference sessions are going virtual along with the main Conference! The Northwest MHTTC is excited to sponsor the Tiers for Fears: Sowing the Seeds of MTSS pre-conference sessions:

Session 1: June 11, 2 - 3:30 p.m.
Session 2: June 25, 2 - 4 p.m.

*Please attend both days in the series. There will be a couple of recorded sessions to watch between sessions.



If you are considering an MTSS framework in your building or district, or are in the process of implementing, this session is for you. The presenters have worked across the country training, coaching, and evaluating the implementation of MTSS in schools, districts, and other human services settings for decades. Regardless of what stage you are in, this session will provide you with essential foundational information on MTSS framework and logic as well as evidence-based interventions across all three tiers to support even the most challenging situations and provide you with an opportunity to create an action plan for next steps back at your building or district.

We will address common concerns we are hearing across Washington including mental health integration, disproportionality in school discipline, family engagement, effective classroom practices, restorative practices, teaming, initiative overload, inclusive practices, data-based decision making, and current state level policies, procedures and guidance from OSPI. Bring your tough questions, implementation challenges, and other barriers you've experienced and we will provide the information you need to keep moving forward.


PRESENTERS: Jessica Swain-Bradway, NWPBIS Network, Justyn Poulos, OSPI, Kelcey Schmitz, UW SMART Center & Kurt Hatch, Association of Washington School Principals.
