What is MTSS?

  • Multi-Tiered System of Support 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.

    This 3-tiered model provides differentiated core instruction delivered with fidelity as the solid instructional foundation received by all students. Students that are not responding to high-quality core instruction and supports are provided targeted intervention to address their identified needs. The Five Essential Components, which form a foundation for creating a sustainable system of supports are:

    • Team-Driven Shared Leadership
    • Data-Based Problem Solving and Decision-Making
    • Family, School, and Community Partnering
    • Layered Continuum of Supports
    • Evidence-Based Practices
