Multi-Tiered System of Support
What Is MTSS
A Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is a framework of instructional design aimed to support all students in making progress toward and exceeding mastery of grade-level content standards.
In an MTSS framework, instructional supports are differentiated by levels to accelerate growth both for students who lag behind their peers, as well as those who exceed grade-level expectations. A school-wide, multi-level instructional system for preventing school failure includes screening, progress monitoring, and data-based decision making for instruction and movement within the multi-level system (MN Department of Education, 2015).
What does that really mean? It means that we are building a system that ensures students receive the help they need when they need it: one system of multiple supports – in academics and behavior.
