Who we are

The Virginia Tiered Systems of Supports aligns academics, behavior and social-emotional wellness into a single decision-making framework to establish the supports needed for schools to be effective learning environments for all students. We partner with school divisions throughout the Commonwealth to support the successful implementation of the framework.

Formed Families Forward Videos

In partnership with Formed Families Forward, a community parent resource center, the VTSS produced a set of three brief trauma training videos designed for wide use by educator and family audiences. The videos focus on building trauma awareness, responding to trauma and traumatic stress, and supporting trauma-sensitive schools.
Three additional family engagement videos were created to highlight specific strategies for school teams to consider as they build momentum around family-school partnerships and strengthen skills to meaningfully engage families in multi-tiered systems.
You can also check out our Community resources page for the link to the videos and related resources.
