CGCC: Alphabet Soup - Understanding the Acronyms of Public Education

Alphabet Soup - Understanding the Acronyms of Public Education

As public and private schools pivot to promote the social, emotional, and academic well being of all students, Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), Response-to-Intervention (RtI) and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) have become buzzy initialisms seasoning our everyday discussions about the state of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) in the post-pandemic era of education. Rather than a flash in a pan, or a pot, MTSS, RtI, PBIS and SEL represent an alphabet soup of educational initiatives that have stirred the past twenty-five years of public policy and reform, with no shortage of chefs offering alternative approaches to boil the broth.  

Are you feeling hungry to expand your understanding of MTSS, Rtl and PBIS and learn how these data-driven, problem solving models are currently being used to promote SEL in schools?  

Join CGCC professional member Peter Platten for a twenty-minute presentation and Q&A session on September 20th from 7pm to 8pm. Q&A will follow.  

Peter Platten, PhD, NCSP, LCP, is a nationally certified school psychologist and a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of Illinois. He has worked in the public school setting since 2009, most recently in a high school district supporting programs for students with a wide range of social, emotional, behavioral and academic needs. Previously, he worked in a public middle school and a K-8 therapeutic day school for students with emotional and behavioral difficulties. He has taught at the graduate level as an adjunct professor. As a graduate student, he was the lead research assistant on an academic empowerment program and co-authored two articles documenting its effectiveness. He will be establish a private practice in fall of 2023, offering his services to children and families in need of navigating the public education system.
