What is MTSS?
Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) is an integrated 3-tiered model of support addressing the needs of all students through a coherent continuum of research-based, system-wide practices supporting teaching and learning; academic, social emotional and behavioral. It is a systematic and prevention-based framework of team-driven data-based problem solving for improving the outcomes of every student through family, school and community partnering in conjunction with the layering of evidence-based practices at the classroom, school and district level.
