MOULTRIE, Ga. — The South Georgia MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Supports) will return to Moultrie on May 29, 2019 for the second year in a row and will be hosted at Colquitt County High School.

The conference committee began making plans back in September and is now accepting proposals for presentations and seeking sponsorships from community partners, according to a press release from the school system. Those interested in presenting at or sponsoring the event can visit to find out more information.

“Last year, we had over 300 participants from across 22 counties, and we are anticipating a larger crowd this year,” says Tabathia Baldy, director of response to intervention and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports in Colquitt County Schools. “These types of events are usually held in North Georgia, so we consider it an honor to be able to provide this learning opportunity here in South Georgia.”

Presentations cover a variety of topics including academic and behavioral strategies and interventions, mental health, Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), Social Emotional and Therapeutic Interventions, using technology in the classroom, strategies for working with English learners and students with disabilities, and many more.

Educators as well as other individuals working with school-aged youth are encouraged to participate, the school system said.

The full day event, which occurs on a non-work day for school system employees, includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and opportunities to win door prizes. The committee relies on sponsors and volunteers to provide this learning opportunity at no cost to Colquitt County School employees and at a very minimal cost to others.

“We received so much positive feedback regarding the quality of last year’s conference,” says Baldy, “so we are hoping to replicate the experience on a slightly larger scale.”
