Learning Supports Office Overview

The Office of Learning Supports (OLS) focuses on technical assistance and guidance related to effective implementation of a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). Through the use of evidence-based practices, districts can establish and maintain systems that are focused on data-based problem solving and decision-making to improve learning outcomes for students.

In addition to supporting MTSS implementation, the OLS supports the implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Bullying Prevention and Education.
