DeSoto ISD looking to implement new strategies to improve educational outcomes for students
DeSoto ISD is looking to take a more holistic approach to teaching its students through a learning model known as a Multi-Tiered System of Supports, the district announced.
The model helps teachers identify students who might be struggling, either behaviorally or academically. The district will use a tool called Branching Minds “to streamline our process to maximize learning so that all students meet individual high-level performance standards,” Kareeme Hawkins, DeSoto ISD interim director of SEL and Guidance said in a news release.
