NeMTSS Summit 2019 At-A-Glance


HOTEL UPDATE (8/8/2019)
Please be advised that ALL Younes property hotel rooms are now officially full for the NeMTSS Summit and unfortunately, due to two of their properties not being able to re-open in time for the Summit they will not be able to accommodate anyone on the waiting list. Younes has asked that anyone still needing a room to please make reservations at another Kearney hotel. They are very saddened and disappointed to not be able to accommodate everyone as originally planned and want to express their appreciation for all of the support, patience and understanding everyone has shown during this flooding clean up.

You may still contact Leslie Galloway at leslie.galloway@nebraska.gov  to request a reservation at one of these properties as she is working directly with Younes staff to try and accommodate everyone…it just cannot be guaranteed as all of the allotted rooms have been filled.

The Candlewood Suites officially re-opened on July 26th and the Holiday Inn Express is also open as they were not affected by the flooding. The Hampton Inn is scheduled to re-open on August 9th and the other four hotels are expected to open one by one every 10 days after that.

The NeMTSS Summit, 2019 is HAPPENING!!  We have been working closely with the Younes Conference Center and Hotels to make sure we are all on track for the 2019 Summit while they are trying to recover from the recent damage from the flood.  We are assured that the Summit will be held and are committed to bringing Nebraska educators together to continue to build our Nebraska MTSS!  With the recovery efforts in process, there have been many messages that have been conveyed regarding hotel reservations and Summit reservations.  Here is all the information you will need to register (confirm registration) and be ready to join us in September.

If you are already registered for the Summit:

  • Your registration will be confirmed by the Department of Education (look for an email…possibly from TAESE/Utah State University)

If you are not yet registered, register now at:  cvent.com/d/w6qrzx

If you had already made a reservation at a Younes Campus Hotel and received an email or phone message saying this reservation has been canceled, you will need to make a new reservation as many of the hotels have not been able to continue the reservations.  These reservations will be made through Leslie Galloway in the NDE – Office of Special Education as the Younes Campus Hotels do not have phone capabilities quite yet.  Since we will have less rooms available, we are asking if individuals could double in a room, that this be an option chosen by the districts.  We are moving room blocks from some of the hotels that will not be open to the Candlewood and Holiday Inn Express (Holiday Inn Express is open and reservations for this specific hotel need to be made with them directly at 308-234-8100…be sure to mention the Summit for the group rate).  Reservations for all other hotels on the Younes Campus will be made by Leslie and will only be made once a Summit registration is confirmed.

NeMTSS is a framework that promotes an integrated system connecting general education and special education, along with all components of teaching and learning, into a high quality, standards-based instruction and intervention system that is matched to a student’s academic, social-emotional and behavior needs. The purpose of the NeMTSS 2019 Summit is to provide an overview for MTSS practices in Nebraska. As such, it will chart the course for school-wide implementation from Pre-Kindergarten through graduation. Utilizing the NeMTSS Framework, The Summit will work to make connections to the essential elements of MTSS and the systematic implementation in schools. It is intended to help all Nebraska Educators increase understanding of the various aspects of the system and to identify areas that warrant future professional development within a school setting.

The 2019 NeMTSS Summit will focus on bringing National and Nebraska speakers and presentations to support school teams to develop their knowledge in Multi-tiered Systems of Support to prepare all Nebraskans for learning, earning and living!

Purpose of Summit:
The Nebraska MTSS Summit focuses on Evidenced-Based Practices along with the leadership and systems that support sustained implementation for ALL educators in their development and understanding of the Multi-tiered System of Support Framework.

Attendees will participate in a variety of breakout sessions with National experts and hear from Nebraskans who are currently building MTSS supports, highlighting their work, successes, and lessons learned.

This Summit will create opportunities for networking and resource sharing. Sessions will include learning new strategies and insights to enhance core and intervention within both Academic and Behavioral MTSS to promote success for all students.

Anyone who has an interest in learning about Multi-tiered System of Support.

There will be a working lunch and a $125 registration fee.
