System of Supports (MTSS) is the practice of providing high-quality
instruction and interventions matched to student need, monitoring
progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or
goals, and applying child response data to important educational
campus has implemented a multi-tier model of educational resource
delivery. Each tier represents an increasing intensity of services
matched to the level of current student need. Student intervention
outcomes drive decision making at every tier of the model. A systematic
data-based decision making (problem-solving) method is used to decide
what interventions to try and determine whether the implemented
strategies are working for students.
The three MTSS tiers are:
is a foundation. This is the instruction that all students receive in
the general education classroom with their general education teacher. It
is called Tier 1 instruction or core instruction. The teachers and
administrators will make sure that materials or instructional practices
are of high quality and effective research based for all students.
supplemental interventions are provided with an increased level of
intensity in addition to core instruction for small groups of students
who show risk of not meeting grade level standards. With fewer students
in a group, an individual student has more opportunities to respond, and
the teacher has more opportunities to give immediate and appropriate
feedback to each student.
intervention is provided at a higher level of intensity in comparison
to Tier 2 and are also provided in addition to core instruction. Tier 3
interventions provides to a small group of two to three students, or to
an individual student, by a staff member. Interventions are tailored
specifically to meet the needs of each student.
