MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT (MTSS)MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT (MTSS)(es)

WHAT IS MTSS?

A Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) includes all students.  It is a process that provides high-quality, research-based instruction based on learner needs.  Needs are identified by screening and monitoring students’ progress.  Adjustments to instruction and interventions are based on students’ performance and rate of success.  MTSS promotes a well-integrated system, connecting general, gifted, and special education with intervention and enrichment services.  MTSS provides high-quality, outcomes based instruction and intervention that is matched to students’ academic, social and behavioral needs.  Response to Intervention (RtI) still remains part of our process as we problem solve.


KEY ELEMENTS OF MTSS:

  • Multi-tiered model of service delivery
  • Instructional decisions consider both academic and social/emotional needs
  • Progress-monitoring data is collected and utilized frequently to change instruction
  • Research-based intervention and supports and strategies are utilized
  • Progress is monitored frequently
  • A continuum of supports and interventions

POTENTIAL BENEFITS OF MTSS:

  • Improving education for ALL students
  • Viewing the whole child when making instructional decisions
  • Encouraging collaboration among educators and parents
  • Providing instructionally relevant information through frequent progress monitoring and benchmarking

ROLE OF THE PARENT/GUARDIAN IN MTSS?

Parents play a critical role in supporting their child’s education.  Parents can be involved in the process by communicating concerns to their child’s teacher, providing context and insight into their child’s learning and development and assisting with identified interventions at home.
