State Support Teams (SSTs) are integral to implementing and achieving this goal. By providing high quality technical assistance, coaching and professional development, SSTs support district and community schools in developing the capacity to fully implement research-based processed and educational practices using a connected set of tools and resources that result in data based decisions, learning across al levels of the system and sustained implementation. Through collaboration within and across regions, SSTs access national, state, regional and local agencies and resources to support districts, community schools and families.
