Conference Topic:  Multi-Tiered Multi-Domain Systems of Support (MTMDSS)

While many of us have become familiar with Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) and know it is a comprehensive framework that addresses the academic and behavioral needs of all students within the educational system, the Multi- Tiered Mulit-Domain System of Supports (MTMDSS) is a framework designed specifically for school counseling programs to organize a continuum of core activities, instruction, and interventions to meet students’ needs with the goals of (1) ensuring that all students receive developmentally appropriate core instruction in all three domains; (2) increasing the academic, social/emotional, and college/career competencies of all students; (3) ensuring guaranteed interventions for students demonstrating a data-driven need; and (4) maximizing student achievement (Hatch, 2017). The MTMDSS model organizes school intervention services into three levels, or tiers.

Two Engaging Presenters

Angie Ness, loves all things school counseling. She has worked at all levels K-12, but her heart is at the elementary level. She enjoys building comprehensive programs that meet the needs of her students and the school community. She is a strong proponent of using data to uncover areas of inequity and advocating for system change on behalf of students. In addition to her previous school counseling positions, she has also served in a leadership role in her county’s comprehensive counseling collaborative composed of seven school districts.
As well as a master’s in school counseling, Angie has earned graduate certificates in applied educational neuroscience and clinical mental health counseling. She is currently an active member of the Indiana School Counseling Association, serves as a RAMP reviewer, and is a doctoral student in Counselor Education and Supervision at the University of the Cumberlands.


Mindy Willard, has had the honor of supporting students and school communities in three states, from preschool to college, from urban Phoenix to rural Wisconsin. Prior to her role as the Director of Outreach and Engagement for Hatching Results, she supported 50 school counselors in her role as the School Counseling and Transitions Coordinator for the Madison Metropolitan School District in Madison, WI. Before moving to the district level, she served as a K-8 school counselor in Glendale, Arizona and a high school counselor in Franklin, Wisconsin. During her 19 years in the field, Mindy’s comprehensive school counseling programs and the counselors she has mentored have been recognized at the state and national levels on several occasions.
In 2011, her Title I K-8 elementary/middle program serving 700 students received ASCA’s prestigious RAMP award. In 2008, Mindy was named the Arizona Multi-level School Counselor of the Year and she went on to be named the 2013 ASCA School Counselor of the Year. In 2016, her high school counseling team’s school counseling program was recognized as a state-wide Program of Promise for submitting a WSCPAR (Wisconsin School Counselor Accountability Report). A graduate of Ball State University (Indiana), she is also a past president of the Arizona School Counselor Association and former Advocacy and Public Relations Director for the Wisconsin School Counselor Association.
