Multi-Tiered System of Suppports (MTSS) is a comprehensive framework designed to improve outcomes for ALL learners. This objective accomplished by systematically and proactively identifying which students need additonal academic and/or behavioral support, planning how to provide support, and monitoring students' progress or response to intervention. The process of determining what type and level of support students need within the MTSS framework is driven by the following questions:
What is it we want students to know and be able to do?
How will we know when each student has achieved the identified goal or goals?
How will we respond when students do not achieve the identified goal or goals?
How will we extend and enrich learning for those students who have met or exceeded the goal or goals?
