Multi-tier System of Support (MTSS)
A multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) is a framework which promotes school improvement through engaging, research-based academic and behavioral practices. All students are part of an MTSS and receive Core (Tier I) instructional supports.
As part of an MTSS and upon review of progress monitoring data, problem-solving teams identify groups of students that need additional support(s) with grade level standards in reading, math, behavior or social emotional learning. These supports are sometimes organized by tiers and are described as interventions.
A letter will be sent to parents that will provide written notification of: (1) the amount and nature of student performance data that will be collected and general education services that will be provided; (2) strategies for increasing the student’s rate of learning; (3) and your right to request an evaluation if you suspect your student’s difficulties are because of a disability.1
