Excellence in Education Without Barriers: Summit enhances approach to providing equitable learning experiences
Professionals working across DoDEA’s Student Support Services gathered recently at Fort Moore, Georgia, to collaborate and improve their leadership capacity as DoDEA continues enhancing its Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) program. This year's summit theme, "Excellence in Education without Barriers," reflects DoDEA’s commitment to fostering equitable educational opportunities and removing barriers for military-connected students.
More than 100 school counseling, school psychology, school nursing, multilingual education, advanced academics and programs, and special education leaders across DoDEA participated in training sessions facilitated by national leaders in education, mediation, collaborative law, and workplace and school culture.
DoDEA is committed to leveraging equity in programming and practices by implementing a MTSS framework that will support students by increasing access and removing barriers to student achievement through academic, social, and emotional support.
