What is MTSS?
MTSS is a needs-driven, equity-focused service delivery framework designed to ensure each student receives the experiences and supports they need to be well, engage fully their learning experiences, and acquire and apply critical competencies that enable school and life success.
Ultimately, MTSS is characterized by these three features:
- Integrating and organizing the delivery of a continuum of effective social-emotional, behavioral, and academic supports with fidelity.
- Engaging in data-based problem solving and decision-making across all tiers of support.
- Striving to ensure each student accesses the support they need to be well, engage fully in their learning experiences, and develop competencies that enable school and life success.
