The purpose of this presentation is to provide school psychologists with an efficient method to systematically examine the implementation of MTSS and highlight results of analyses examining the association of MTSS implementation fidelity and student outcomes. Based on analyses of data from four years of longitudinal data from over 150 school-based leaders and more than 3,500 students, this presentation will provide school psychologists with important insights regarding the implementation of MTSS processes. Given the challenges and opportunities of implementing MTSS, those professionals considering or currently implementing such processes will benefit from the information presented in this session.
