2022 Nebraska MTSS Summit

Creating Coherence

October 13-14, 2022 – Hybrid

 

Join us this fall for the 2022 Nebraska MTSS Summit on Oct. 13 and 14 in Kearney! The two-day event, hosted by the Nebraska Department of Education’s Office of Special Education, will feature engaging presentations and interactive breakout sessions around the theme of “Creating Coherence.”

Participants may attend the summit in person at the Younes Conference Center North or participate in sessions virtually.

As students and teachers move forward in education, the Nebraska Department of Education’s NeMTSS team aims to support Educational Service Units, districts, schools and educators in coming together to work toward a common vision of success.

To facilitate this work, the summit will highlight the connection of behavioral supports, academics, social-emotional learning and continuous improvement within a multi-tiered system of support and offer ways to promote cohesion among these areas to improve outcomes for students.

Presenters and workshops will focus on ways to increase communication, implement successful problem-solving strategies and strengthen MTSS supports in all aspects of education.

The summit will serve as an introduction and expansion of work educators are starting or have already begun with NeMTSS Systems Day training.

The cost of this year’s summit is $125. Registration opens May 16 and is expected to close Sept. 15, unless capacity is reached before then.

Call for Proposals

We are accepting proposals for the 2022 NeMTSS Summit now through June 7.

In addition to keynote presentations, the event will feature two types of sessions:

  • Breakout sessions
  • School spotlight sessions

We are looking for breakout session proposals of both practical and applied nature that relate to the conference theme and are of interest to a Nebraska audience. School spotlight proposals should relate to successful MTSS implementation in Nebraska schools.

Each type of presentation will take place during 75 minute blocks. Breakout sessions will occur on Thursday, Oct. 13 and school spotlights will occur on Friday, Oct. 14.

Please submit proposals online by June 7 for full consideration. More information on session criteria and how to submit proposals is included below.
 

Breakout Sessions

To submit a proposal for a breakout session, please fill out this form. Submissions should include a proposed title and keywords for the session, along with a short description of your aims and objectives, expected learner outcomes and how your session will connect with Nebraska educators. We are looking for breakout sessions that address academics, behavioral supports, continuous improvement, early childhood education, secondary MTSS implementation, and social-emotional learning. We are most interested in presenters who can speak to the interconnectedness of systems work and how Nebraska educators can use multi-tiered systems of support to educate every student.
 

School Spotlights

To submit a proposal for a school spotlight, please fill out this form. Submissions should include information about your session and presenters. We are looking for school spotlights from throughout Nebraska that address successes and growth related to MTSS implementation. We are most interested in programs that can offer stories and examples from their work that other Nebraska schools and programs can find inspiration and information from. Presentations may utilize slideshows, handouts and specific examples to help explain the work you have done in the areas of academics, behavioral supports, continuous improvement, early childhood education, secondary MTSS implementation or social-emotional learning while implementing MTSS. This year’s school spotlights will occur on Friday in individual breakout rooms as presentations and not as poster sessions, like we have done in the past. Please plan to allow 15 minutes for questions and answers at the end of your session.
