Multi-Tiered System of Support
MTSS-Meeting the Needs of All of Our Students
A 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. The framework of MTSS is a “way of doing business,” which utilizes high quality evidence-based instruction, intervention, and assessment practices to ensure that every student receives the appropriate level of support to be successful. A Multi-Tiered System of Supports helps schools and districts to organize resources through alignment of academic standards and behavioral expectations, implemented with fidelity and sustained over time, in order to enable every child to successfully reach his/her fullest potential. Educators on support teams at King Murphy meet one time per month to initiate and monitor the progress of students through the MTSS process. Goals are set, interventions and supports are put into place, the results are monitored and adjustments are made monthly to ensure students are successful academically, socially, emotionally and behaviorally.
