Topics Of Discussion

How do you use your coaches? Are they content specific? Natick Public Schools has content specific coaches but this year we added 5 new Personalized Learning Coaches to our team. This team of educators is focused on lifting the level of teacher practice to lift the level of the learning for all students. We are supporting our educators in implementing Universal Design for Learning so that barriers are removed and every student can access the curriculum and demonstrate their mastery in ways that vary from the traditional classroom. We are using digital tools and non-digital tools to provide students with voice and choice in their learning. 

Embark on a journey of exploration and collaboration in our roundtable discussion on the intricate facets of implementing a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) in your school district. Dive into the complexities of universal screening, progress monitoring, and data-based decision-making. Join peers in a thoughtful dialogue, sharing experiences and strategies to navigate the nuanced landscape of student support. Let’s unravel the challenges together and pave the way for effective implementation.

Session In K-12 education, efforts to prioritize diversity, equity, inclusivity, and belonging are essential for ensuring all students can access rigorous academic opportunities and resources. Moreover, it is now becoming a critical determinant of school district effectiveness and desirability to families nationwide. Join us to learn practical strategies from one school district’s e ff orts to move from a cycle of reactivity to one of proactively creating sustainable approaches to equity and inclusivity. This session will cover several key strategies for creating and sustaining a culture of equity in K-12 school districts including central office staff structure, auditing current states of equity and inclusivity, gaining stakeholder and community support, and developing a strategic action plan with embedded accountability measures. This session is ideal for school district leaders, central office staff, and anyone interested in creating a more equitable educational environment.

Samantha Holder
Director of Elementary Academics, Amarillo Independent School District

The model used by RTM is the perfect mix of content and vendor meeting. I looked for ARD to both the strategy sessions and the 1:1 meetings with vendors. I spoke with vendors I would have walked right by at a traditional conference.
