What is MTSS?
A Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a framework focused on prevention and problem solving for all students using decision making based on data. MTSS uses evidence-based instruction, intervention, and assessment practices to ensure that every student receives the appropriate level of support based on their level of need. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining Tier 1 supports (universal), Tier 2 supports (targeted group), and Tier 3 supports (individual) systems to help eliminate barriers to learning and enable every student to successfully reach their full potential.
MTSS Mission Statement
The MTSS department supports schools in the development of sustainable academic and behavioral tiered systems of support through relationship building, focused training, and strategic coaching in order to ensure schools have the systems needed to guarantee equitable outcomes for all students.
