Section 1.

new text begin [121A.201] MTSS AND COLLABORATIVE MINNESOTA
PARTNERSHIPS TO ADVANCE STUDENT SUCCESS (COMPASS).
new text end

new text begin Beginning July 1, 2023, all Minnesota school districts and charter schools must be offered
training and support in implementing MTSS through the Department of Education
COMPASS team and the Department of Education's regional partners, the Minnesota Service
Cooperatives. COMPASS is the state school improvement model providing a statewide
system through which all districts and schools may receive support in the areas of literacy,
math, social-emotional learning, and mental health within the MTSS framework. The MTSS
framework is the state's systemic, continuous school improvement framework for ensuring
positive social, emotional, behavioral, developmental, and academic outcomes for every
student. MTSS provides access to layered tiers of culturally and linguistically responsive,
evidence-based practices. The MTSS framework relies on the understanding and belief that
every student can learn and thrive, and it engages an anti-bias and socially just approach to
examining policies and practices and ensuring equitable distribution of resources and
opportunity. The MTSS systemic framework requires:
new text end

new text begin (1) a district-wide infrastructure consisting of effective leaders, collective efficacy among
staff, positive school climate, linked teams, and professional learning that supports continuous
improvement;
new text end

new text begin (2) authentic engagement with families and communities to develop reciprocal
relationships and build new opportunities for students together;
new text end

new text begin (3) multilayered tiers of culturally and linguistically responsive instruction and support
that allows every student the support they need to reach meaningful and rigorous learning
standards. Tiers of support include core (Tier 1), supplemental (Tier 2), and intensive (Tier
3) instruction levels;
new text end

new text begin (4) valid and reliable assessment tools and processes to assess student and system
performance and inform necessary changes; and
new text end

new text begin (5) a data-based decision-making approach in which problems are precisely defined and
analyzed, solutions address root causes, and implementation is monitored to ensure success.
The data-based problem-solving component of the MTSS framework consists of three major
subcomponents: accessible and integrated data, decision-making process, and system
performance.

(a) The department must review and approve or
disapprove online learning providers within 90 calendar days of receiving an online learning

quality for online learning programs, must review all approved online learning providers
on a cyclical three-year basis. Approved online learning providers annually must submit
program data to, confirm statements of assurances for, and provide program updates including
a current course list to the commissioner.

curriculum, instruction, and assessment, expectations for actual teacher-contact time or
other student-to-teacher communication, and academic support meet nationally recognized
professional standards and are described as such in an online learning course syllabus that

this paragraph, all of its online learning course offerings are eligible for payment under this
section unless a course is successfully challenged by an enrolling district or the department
under paragraph (c).

(c) An enrolling district may challenge the validity of a course offered by an online
learning provider. The department must review such challenges based on the approval
procedures under paragraph (b). The department may initiate its own review of the validity
of an online learning course offered by an online learning provider.

(d) The department may collect a fee not to exceed $250 for approving online learning
providers or $50 per course for reviewing a challenge by an enrolling district.

(e) The department must develop, publish, and maintain a list of online learning providers
that it has reviewed and approved.

(f) The department may review a complaint about an online learning provider, or a
complaint about a provider based on the provider's response to notice of a violation. If the
department determines that an online learning provider violated a law or rule, the department
may:

(1) create a compliance plan for the provider; or

(2) withhold funds from the provider under sections 124D.095, 124E.25, and 127A.42.
The department must notify an online learning provider in writing about withholding funds
and provide detailed calculations.
