As leaders of MTSS, Student Services, and On-Time Graduation, the team at Everett Public Schools has seen tremendous success in improving On-Time Graduation rates and college, career, and life readiness for students. What can we learn from their story that we can take back to our districts, and how will the realities of today’s schools, including increased inequities, trauma, and logistical challenges, inform our approach to the 2020-2021 school year? 

Watch this interactive Q&A with Panorama and educational leaders to learn how your peers are supporting students’ On-Time Graduation. We'll cover: 

  • Implementing prevention as well as response tools and processes with a unified Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) 
  • Establishing equity targets and practices for looking at data with an equity lens 
  • Shifting “from numbers to names” to ensure each student is on a path to succeed 
  • Implementing a K-12 focus for social-emotional learning to prepare students for college, career, and life readiness 
  • Developing staff capacity while focusing on needs of each student
