SBCOE to serve as Region 5 lead for student support

For the second year in a row, the San Benito County Office of Education will serve as the Region 5 lead for the California Scale Up MTSS Statewide (SUMS) Initiative designed to scale-up a sustainable Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) in schools across the state. Region 5 is one of 11 county office regions in the state and consists of San Benito, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz and Monterey counties.

MTSS is a framework which organizes and systematizes existing supports for students and provides a system for schools to identify additional ways to help students.
As the regional lead, the district trains district personnel, provides technical assistance and acts as a liaison between the state and the Region 5 county offices of education and each district.

Currently, nine of the 11 districts in the county are working with the county office of education to develop a strong MTSS in each of their schools. Through the support of the county district, nine of our districts applied for and received a grant of between $25-$50,000 to train staff and develop MTSS at their sites. One final round of grants will be offered to other districts next fall.
