IMS- Learning Focus Team- MTSS (optional/ clock hours)

Administered by Mercer Island


  • Tara Stone


Multi-Tier System of Support

The purpose of our learning team will be to reflect on the current practices at IMS around educating all students.  This team needs individuals who are committed to learning, understanding, adapting, and leading a systematic change to better meet the needs of all of our students, both academically and emotionally.  This team may become the guiding coalition to lead the transformation. 

Our work as a team will include:

  • Interpreting the district’s vision.

  • Research models of MTSS at a secondary level.

  • Understand the benefits and challenges of implementing an RTI (Response to Intervention) and PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention Support) system.

The outcome of our work will be to recommend a child-centered system of tiered supports at Islander that is inclusive, and educates all students, at all levels, by providing interventions for core subject areas (RTI) and by meeting the social-emotional needs (PBIS) of our students.
