EMLSS Project Launch

Thursday, June 22, 2023

We are excited to announce the launching of the Equitable Multi-Level System of Support (EMLSS) Project. Similar to the Wisconsin RtI Center (whose services are ending June 30, 2023), the Project will provide low- or no-cost professional learning, coaching, and technical assistance for schools and districts related to Wisconsin’s Framework for Equitable Multi-Level Systems of Support (Equitable MLSS), including:

  • Learning about key features of a framework for an equitable MLSS
  • Positive Behavior Supports and Interventions (PBIS)
  • Universal instruction in reading and math (to be piloted in 2023-24)
  • Culturally Responsive Practices (to be piloted in 2023-24)

Any school or district team can contact their CESA to work with the EMLSS Project. Priority will be given for the continuation of work with school or district teams previously engaged with the RtI Center and districts with LEA Determinations for IDEA (such as Level 2 schools). The EMLSS Project will also host a summer conference from August 8–9, 2023. Visit this link for more information and to register.

Services from the EMLSS Project are CESA-based. Each CESA has an Equitable MLSS coach to serve schools and districts. The coaches work collaboratively with each other and a Statewide Coordinator and will be supported by a Statewide Research Coordinator. For more information, LEAs should contact their CESA or Barb Novak, DPI Consultant, at
