    Systems for Student Success Office (SfSS)

    The Systems for Student Success Office (SfSS) is one of five offices within the Statewide System of Support that provides evidence-based targeted assistance and support to schools and districts designated as Requiring Assistance and Intervention by the Massachusetts accountability system. More specifically, SfSS designs and delivers resources, professional development, grants, and assistance to enhance integrated, tiered, and systemic approaches to supporting the social emotional and academic needs of all students, and especially those who have been historically marginalized (e.g. students of color, students with disabilities, English learners, etc).

    For questions about the SfSS office or offerings, please contact Rebecca Shor at rshor@doe.mass.edu.
