Northwest AEA is leveraging the power of Collaborative Learning Communities (CLCs) to build a foundational understanding the MTSS framework. Our primary area of focus is the conceptual area of intervention. Every member of the agency is participating in a CLC and they are focused on studying the intervention guide

Each CLC (seven to eight members) is meeting monthly to learn how to implement the intervention guide and to support each other in trying the steps described in the guide. Don't be surprised if an AEA staff member who serves your school asks to try a strategy with your team, you, and/or a student.
