  • Multi-Tiered System of Supports

    Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) is a framework of ongoing systems and procedures used to create prevention, enrichment and intervention opportunities for the whole child.

    MTSS utilizes high-quality evidence-based instruction and assessment practices to ensure that every student receives the appropriate level of support to be successful.

    Our Mission:

    To create and strengthen systematic processes that ensure every child receives the additional time and support needed to learn at high levels.

    Our Vision:

    Guaranteeing the social, emotional, and academic success of every child to create a better world.


    MTSS Toolkit



Key Components of MTSS

  • Universal screening of all students three times a year to identify students who may be at risk and those needing additional support.

    • A multi-level prevention system that includes a continuum of integrated academic, social-emotional, and behavioral instructional and intervention supports.
    • Progress Monitoring using valid and reliable tools and processes to assess performance and quantify responsiveness to interventions and evaluate the effectiveness of instruction and interventions.
    • Data-based decision making includes data analysis and problem-solving through teaming to make informed decisions around identification, implementation, and interventions.


Tiers of Support

  • Under the umbrella of MTSS, there are three tiers under which a student may receive support. The framework of a multi-tiered approach provides for efficient and effective allocation of resources. When appropriately used, the tiers support each learner to experience success by meeting their unique needs.
