MCPER has received a $2 million, 1-year grant from the Texas Education Agency to develop and disseminate information about best practices related to academic and behavioral interventions.

Tiered Interventions Using Evidence-Based Research (TIER) will develop a set of modules related to multitiered systems of support in academics and behavior to improve the outcomes of students with or at risk for disability. The project also will create on-demand versions of each module so educators across Texas can access the materials independently at their convenience.

"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the Texas Education Agency and educators across Texas to ensure that all schools have support systems in place to improve the outcomes of students with disabilities," said Sarah Powell, TIER principal investigator. "We are embarking on an ambitious project with materials that could be utilized by every educator in Texas."
