    This year’s morning sessions will be part of a four week series by the ESA Behavioral Health Coalition and the UW SMART Center as coordinated by Carrie Suchy, NCSP. Hear from experts in the field as well as professionals implementing Interconnected System Framework (ISF) in Washington today. Learn about ISF, the next generation of student wellness supports, a model for implementing effective tiered student wellness services from a variety of providers, school-based and community-based, within an existing MTSS structure.

    It takes an active team to support the wellness of all students. Gather your school or district team together to learn about ISF, to benefit from the experience of others, and to spend time creating a plan for change. Learn how existing ESA staff and other providers within your school community fit within the ISF team to support plan formation and implementation.

    Student support frameworks in our schools may result in siloed systems which often do not feel productive or supportive for teams and students. Reimagine PBIS as a mental health initiative with ISF, to connect these systems to more effectively and efficiently serve the wellbeing of all students.

    Intended Audience: District and Building Level Teams Including administrators, ESA Behavioral Health Professionals, (school psychologists, counselors, nurses, social workers, behavior analysts), and community partners.
