Equitable Access to Diverse Teachers and Leaders
This project will develop the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), Minnesota Regional Centers of Excellence (MN RCEs), and Minnesota local education agencies (MN LEAs) capacity to support continuous improvement around educator diversification. The project will create professional learning opportunities, tools, and guidance to support the use of a teacher diversification toolkit and implementation of evidence-based practices.
Development & Implementation of Minnesota Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MnMTSS) Framework
This project will develop a framework that guides and unifies implementation of Multi-Tier Systems of Support (MTSS) across the state of Minnesota, and that incorporates the values, priorities, and initiatives of the various divisions within the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE).
Circles of Reflection: Early Learning
In partnership with the Native Education Collaborative of the National Comprehensive Center, the Circles of Reflection process fostered dialogue between Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction staff and educators from organizations serving Native American early learners through the summer and fall of 2022. The project then entered an action planning phase which centers the voices of educators and leaders of Tribal Nations to identify actionable, evidenced-based, and quality practices to support Native children.
