Participants will learn that the Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is high quality instruction for all students, with interventions matched to each students need. You will explore monitoring progress using this system, and how data can be used in important educational decisions. This tutorial will also illustrate what the Multi-Tiered System of Support would look like within your school. You will then explore the special education process, from referral to evaluation, eligibility determination and reevaluations. Then you will identify the data that needs to be entered into NH Special Education Information System (NHSEIS) and when, and then how this information is reported to the federal government. Successful completion of this tutorial will earn you a Certificate of Completion for 2 professional development hours.

This tutorial will offer resources and guidance to help with the development of your proposals for funding through the New Hampshire Title IV-A Student Support and Academic Enrichment program.  The New Hampshire Title IV-A Program is designed to support the New Hampshire vision of competency based education and personalized learning in the context of preparing students for the future. The NH DOE is conducting a competitive grant process to support districts in their efforts to improve personalized learning and competency-based education efforts while ensuring learning experiences are augmented with digital tools and resources that support academic and digital literacy. Engaging students and school communities in activities that integrate digital tools and resources is a powerful way for schools and districts to move students towards future readiness. One framework for developing systemic personalized learning through visioning, planning, and implementation of school improvement activities focused on personalizing student learning is the Future Ready Framework.

Participants will learn the definitions of accommodations and modifications, as well as how to determine the difference between the two.  Types and examples  of accommodations and modifications are discussed. Guidance is given as to how teams can make better decisions about when to accommodate and when to modify as well as how to review the effectiveness of accommodations and modifications and how to document their implementation. A description of the continuum of support is provided as well as how to use and not use the NHSEIS dropdown menu of accommodations and modifications. State Assessment accommodations, alternate assessment, documenting accommodations and modifications and preschool accommodations/modifications are briefly discussed as well. Successful completion of this tutorial will earn you a Certificate of Completion for 2 professional development hours.
