    Buy-In (in MTSS) is Like Sunscreen
    Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023  |  1 PM ET / 12 PM CT / 10 AM PT
    Karen Castle, Executive Director of Professional Learning, Branching Minds
    Michele James, Professional Services Manager, Branching Minds

    The secret to sunscreen is re-applying. And, just like the burn you get when you don't reapply, assuming that getting MTSS "buy in" is a one-time event will leave you burned, too. Join us for this webinar as we think about the impact of a thoughtful MTSS "buy in campaign" - one that anticipates and plans for factors that impact our resiliency and sustainability in the various tasks and plans we think we are committed to.


    Get Out of Your Toxic Relationship With Data: BRM to the Rescue! | Live Demo
    Tuesday, Feb. 14, 2023  |  11 AM ET / 10 AM CT / 8 AM PT
    Emily-Rose Barry, Vice President of Product, Branching Minds
    Erica "Babs" Ilcyn, Junior Account Executive, Branching Minds

    When MTSS documentation is treated as a compliance activity, teachers do all the work and get little to nothing back for it – the data isn’t meaningful or useful. It’s a one-way street, and who needs a relationship like that? Enter Branching Minds! The BRM platform is built to get teachers out of their one-way relationship with data and into a more equal partnership, where they get out of it as much as they put in (if not more). Join our Vice President of Product, Emily-Rose Barry, for a tour of BRM features that provide actionable data for teachers, making their work easier and more impactful.


    Nurturing a Sense of Belonging in Schools
    Thursday, February 16, 2023  |  1 PM ET / 12 PM CT / 10 AM PT
    Trudy Bender, MTSS Content Marketing Manager, Branching Minds
    Whitley Dozier, Customer Success Manager, Branching Minds
    Dr. Essie Sutton, Director of Learning Science, Branching Minds

    Students’ sense of belonging in school can play a critical role in their academic and social-emotional learning and development. When students feel like they belong in their school community, they are more likely to engage in classroom instruction and activities, form positive relationships with their peers and teachers, and feel motivated to succeed. This webinar will focus on the importance of creating a supportive and inclusive environment in schools, and will highlight research supporting best practices for fostering student belonging. Specific district- and school-level practices and policies that support this work will be discussed.

    “Mindset Is a Resource:” Using the MTSS Process To Build Community and Collaboration
    Wednesday, Mar. 1, 2023  |  1 PM ET / 12 PM CT / 10 AM PT
    Karen Castle, Executive Director of Professional Learning, Branching Minds
    Lauren Schutz, Professional Services Manager, Branching Minds

    We all know it is better for our students (and for us!) when we share responsibility and work collectively. And yet, collaboration in practice is often inefficient and frustrating. In this webinar, we will discuss how an MTSS helps people become better collaborators and problem solvers. And, if we collaborate within MTSS…what other things may improve, as well!

We will also highlight the work being done by the JED Foundation using their comprehensive framework as a guide for implementing evidence-based practices to promote mental health and prevent suicide among young people. The webinar will also provide an overview of JED’s High School program, which helps schools develop and implement strategic plans for addressing mental health and student wellness at their campus.
