What Is MTSS?
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) provides a guiding framework for educators to prioritize students in need of additional supports, use evidence-based practices, and progress monitor with data.
As schools serve a student population with increasingly complex needs across academics, behavior, and social-emotional learning (SEL), many schools are turning to tiered student support frameworks, such as MTSS and Response to Intervention (RTI), to meet the needs of all students. These frameworks have been highlighted as critical levers of improvement under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), which calls for the use of evidence-based interventions and data-driven progress monitoring for students in need.
MTSS in Action: Strategies from School and District Leaders
A growing number of schools and districts are prioritizing tiered frameworks to ensure that educators are delivering the right interventions to students at the right time. This work includes setting up data systems, mobilizing human resources, and aligning staff around goals and expectations for MTSS.
While each district is at a different stage in this journey, there's a lot to learn from the processes, strategies, and tools being used today to implement MTSS.
Below, take a look at how innovative schools and districts across the country are paving the way forward for MTSS and changing what it means to prepare students for bright futures.
