Multi-Tiered System of Support
Each school provides a layered system of support called a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) so all students can grow academically, behaviorally, and emotionally. MTSS is a framework for continuous school improvement and uses evidence-based practices, a data-driven problem-solving model, and a three-tiered instruction/intervention model to maximize growth for all students. MTSS combines Response to Instruction (RTI) and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) into one effective and efficient approach.
For more information on the specific support available at your child’s school, please contact the school directly.
