Our Students Are Not Alright: Building Equitable Systems of Support in CA

June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Watch the Zoom Recording here.

Join UCLA’s Center for the Transformation of Schools as we present a NEW series of research briefs from our CA MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Support) Research Consortium network.

New national data shows students of color and all student groups are still being affected after the height of COVID, including California youth. Student learning challenges, surging mental health needs, staffing shortages and student enrollment declines suggest an immediate response is needed. The briefs serve as resources to support educators and system-leaders implementing CA MTSS for key student populations: students in foster care, multilingual learners, students experiencing homelessness, low-income students and students of color. Briefs will include case studies and models that can help bolster tiered systems of support for student learning, behavior, and social-emotional health. CA MTSS Research Consortium scholars and educators from 8 of the nation’s leading universities will present their findings and discuss implications and recommendations for practice and policy.

About the CA MTSS Research Consortium:

The CA MTSS Research Consortium is a network of expert scholars from across the country brought together to investigate how to support educators as they implement CA MTSS across academic, behavior, and social emotional learning domains of the CA MTSS framework.

The diversity of researchers comprising the consortium allows for a multifaceted understanding of the CA MTSS framework, bridging perspectives from the disciplines of social work, education policy, psychology, economics, and educational leadership. Consortium scholars draw on their expertise in alternative discipline approaches, racial equity, the development of educator training programs, and educational cost-benefit analyses.
