Empowered Paraprofessional Training on The VTmtss Framework
The VTmtss Team has worked in collaboration with the Special Education's Team to produce a training as part of their Empowered Paraprofessional series. This recorded workshop introduces paraeducators to The VTmtss Framework and how the recently revised VTmtss Field Guide can help inform equity in school systems. The session allows the opportunity for personal reflection and to brainstorm ways the Framework can apply to your unique context.
