Getting Tier 1 Right

Tier 1 is the foundation and getting it right is pivotal for student success. Tier 1 represents the experiences and support that each and every student receives. Using a recipe metaphor, we will discuss the research-based ingredients that combine to create a comprehensive Tier 1 system of support for all students that optimizes student outcomes. This webinar will be led by our Co-Founders (John Norlin & Houston Kraft), Dr. Clay Cook (Chief Development Officer), Megan Gruis (Director of Implementation), and Kat Pastor (Director of Student Support & 2016 NSCOY). Come prepared for a fast-pace, engaging, and resource-rich webinar experience.
