Multi-Tiered Systems of Support

  • What is MTSS:

    The district operates within a multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) for system-level and school-level improvement. Our district’s data-based problem solving process guides implementation and progress monitoring of district goals through a multi-tiered system of supports. The purpose of the system is to ensure each student masters grade-level/course standards and expectations. Accordingly, the district provides instruction based on student need along the continuum and organizes and allocates resources in direct proportion to student need. The district’s areas of focus for multi-tiered instruction include closing existing knowledge and skill gaps, focusing on gaps that would prevent engagement and/or success with core instruction and promoting and maintaining student engagement. MTSS concepts and framework are communicated, discussed and embraced:

    • High quality core instruction
    •   Scientific research-based tiered interventions aligned to student need
    •   Frequent monitoring of student progress to make results-based academic and/or behavioral decisions
    •   Application of student response data to important educational decisions
