The Mississippi Bend AEA employs experts who co-own the implementation of a collaborative culture, using PLCs as the vehicle for an MTSS framework.

As an every-education process, MTSS allows educators to judge the overall health of their educational system by examining data on all students (general and special education) as well as identifying students who need additional supports, enrichment, and engagement. These elements are provided in both small group and individual settings, and measured to determine if they are making a difference to ensure all learners demonstrate proficiency in the Iowa Core standards and leave school ready for life.


From Camanche to Louisa-Muscatine, we are working with entire districts to help transform the way they approach and maximize teacher collaboration and student achieve. Click here to learn more about what a comprehensive school improvement plan is and we might be able to help your district.

The MTSS process can be daunting at times. Sometimes a whole district shift is not possible. We can/do assist several individual schools around the Agency area with professional development, resources, coaching, and presentations.

Being a change-agent isn't always the most glamorous or affirming endeavor to undertake. Don't feel like you have to "go-it-alone." We are here to help educate, support, or coach in many ways that might be useful to you and your classroom. Contact us here.

Positive transformation doesn't happen overnight. However, when the focus is shifted to student "learning" and not on "teaching" the MTSS process can have some pretty amazing results.
