Hello everyone!

Would you please forward this and share broadly with your colleagues and LEAs? Also, please consider submitting a proposal for a conference session yourself!

The Utah Multi-Tiered System of Supports (UMTSS) 2017 conference will be held June 21-22, 2017, at the Utah Valley Conference Center in Provo, UT.  Preconference sessions are scheduled on June 20 for (a) LEAs currently receiving UMTSS grant funding and (b) people interested in post-school transition. The January flyer for the conference is attached.

We are very excited about our Keynote Speaker and Featured Presenter lineup.  These nationally-known experts have been carefully selected to provide a broad range of expertise for implementing a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) across grades, content areas and domains.  We anticipate approximately 1400 conference participants: administrators, specialists/coordinators, general and special educators, service providers, higher education (IHEs), parents and others. The attached UMTSS Conference flyer includes information to be distributed.

The call for proposals for conference sessions is open (and attached). The submission deadline for session proposals is March 6, 2017. We hope to receive a wide range of proposals from leaders and practitioners in education throughout Utah.  Proposals can be submitted through the conference website at http://umtssconference.org (or http://umtssconference.org/Proposals.cfm).

Please distribute this message/flyer widely and consider submitting a proposal for a presentation (or poster) at the conference. We hope to receive many proposal submissions! It would be wonderful to have each section at the USBE, LEAs, and IHEs represented at the conference, so please share this announcement with all stakeholders with whom you work.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks in advance for considering submitting a proposal and forwarding this announcement to others.
