Multi-Tiered System of Supports
Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
Multi-Tiered System of Supports is a framework of providing high quality, research-based instruction for academics and behavior in a general education setting for core subjects and interventions. The interventions are matched to student needs, based on data, and monitored routinely to determine progress.
A major component of MTSS is collaboration. Teams of educators, with a variety of expertise, work together to engage in shared problem solving around students who do not respond to high quality instruction. Parents are informed and involved throughout the process.
