To optimize student success, all schools in the MCCSC must address the academic, behavioral, and social emotional needs of students through tiered support. All three areas are mutually-reinforcing and should be at the core of our Whole Child Support System. Movement across the three tiers is fluid and supported by data from universal screeners, diagnostic assessments, progress monitoring, and how a student responds to levels of intervention.

Our educators are committed to creating a comprehensive system of support that builds upon the unique strengths of our students and is responsive to the social and cultural needs of the individual child. We believe that providing culturally responsive personalized instruction for every learner is essential to their future success.

Guiding Principles

We believe that we can support ALL students by following these principles: • Best practices in equity and trauma-informed care will drive our decision making. • All students deserve equitable access to high quality academic, behavioral, and social emotional curriculum and instruction that is challenging, grade-appropriate, and integrates culturally sustaining practices that is responsive to individual needs of the child. • All children can learn when provided with appropriate services and supports. • The health and safety of every MCCSC child is a top priority. • The MCCSC will strive to meet the needs of all students by ensuring that schools optimize data-driven decision making, progress monitoring, and evidence-based supports and strategies with increasing intensity to sustain student growth.
