What is MTSS?
Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) involves Quality Core Instruction, assessment, and intervention to ensure that ALL students receive the level of support they need to be successful.
The Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a school-wide, data driven, proactive framework for improving both learning and behavioral outcomes for all students. It utilizes evidenced based practices and an effective system to improve core instruction and intervention. It gives students immediate access to academic and behavioral support through the combination of Response to Intervention (RTI) and Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS). Multi-Tiered System of Support focuses on meeting the academic, behavioral, social, and emotional needs of each student.
What you can do if you have concerns about your child’s progress?
Communicate regularly with your child’s teacher.
Contact your child’s teacher, counselor, or other staff member and ask for a team meeting to: review your child’s MTSS data; discuss your child’s strengths, work samples, peer relationships, and challenges; and collaborate on strategies you can use to support your child at home.
If at any time in the process the parents or the school staff suspect that the student has disability, the student should be referred for a special education evaluation. Any information collected from the intervention process will and should be reviewed as part of the evaluation. The student may continue to receive support and interventions while the special education evaluation is in progress.
