Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) - What You Need to Know

Updated: Aug 16, 2023

The effects of the pandemic continue to be felt across the country and the world. Educators are tasked with bridging the gaps in student achievement, administrators are tasked with hiring and retaining educators, all while the mental health crisis looms among us. How can we work smarter to provide students with exactly what they need to succeed?

New programs or curricula may not be the answer; look at how teachers are teaching in addition to what they are teaching. The tools needed may be in our schools or on our shelves, but how are we using them? Implementing an MTSS framework puts the pieces in place to ensure that all students are supported in their specific area(s) of need.

Who benefits from a MTSS?

  • Students who have not mastered a skill

  • Students falling below or well-below grade level expectations

  • Students receiving special education services

  • Students who are English language learners

  • Students who are gifted and talented

What do you see in a successful MTSS framework?

  • Curriculum Analysis

  • Universal Screening

  • Data-based Decision Making

  • Progress Monitoring
