A Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a “tiered system of supports that integrates assessment and intervention within a school-wide, multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and reduce behavioral problems. MTSS promotes systems alignment to increase efficiency and effectiveness of resources” (Adopted from National Center on Response to Intervention, 2010). This allows instruction/interventions to match to student needs and ongoing monitoring of progress. MTSS is a framework for all students.
Our mission is to meet the academic, behavioral, social-emotional needs of each and every child.
Our vision is supporting students academic and social development through effective MTSS.
