Multi-Tiered System of Supports

  • Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a systemic, continuous-improvement framework in which data-based problem solving and decision-making is practiced across all levels of the educational system for supporting students. MTSS takes a proactive approach to identifying students with academic or behavioral needs. The key components of MTSS include:

    • Universal screening of all students early in the school year
    • Tiers of instruction that support each student’s individual needs
    • Ongoing data collection and continual assessment to guide instruction
    • Schoolwide approach to expectations and supports to support all learners
