Central Elementary has adopted Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). What is it and why are we using it?
Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
- a system of prevention, early intervention, and tiered support
- ensures all students, including both struggling and advanced learners, are achieving to high academic and behavioral standards
- individual student progress is monitored and results are used to make decisions about further instruction and intervention
Why an integrated behavior and academic support model?
- Both are critical for school success
- Share critical features of quality classroom instructional strategies, universal screening, progress monitoring, and data-based decision making
- Both utilize a tiered prevention model
- Both incorporate a team approach at school level, grade level, and individual level
- Models of integrated behavior and reading supports produce larger gains in literacy skills than the reading-only model
