Responsive Teaching

All our students have individual strengths, challenges, hopes, and dreams, and our mission as educators must be to tailor each student’s learning experience to match. The best performing education systems have intentional procedures and systems to monitor how students are doing and adapt the learning experience of the student based on their needs. We must work to make sure these well-established best practices are present in our schools, with clear and repeatable processes and procedures, so every student receives the individual attention they deserve.

Theory of Action

IF schools implement Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) 
that respond effectively to student needs THEN student behavioral and academic needs will be met.


  • By 2025 at least 75% of participating schools will implement the Data-Based Problem-Solving and Decision-Making section of the CDE MTSS rubric to a practice level of at least 8/10 (achieving the CDE "Gold Standard").
