Multi-tiered System of Support (MTSS) is a prevention-based framework on which to develop tiered systems of (Academic) support, (Behavioral) support, & (Social Emotional Learning) support for all students. MTSS allows for a system level change on how we support students, which is driven by a data problem-solving model. Currently, the tiered-models most used for academics is Response to Intervention (RtI) and for behavior is Positive Interventions and Supports (PBIS). It is important to note that RtI is primarily used to identify students who are struggling academically so interventions can be matched to improve academic achievement. Further, MTSS also includes identifying high-quality instruction in order to prevent those academic struggles identified by the RtI process. So, it is important to establish preventative and intervention methods of instruction to improve student’s academic growth. This MTSS webinar series will include 4 blocks of learning opportunities provided over the 2019-2020 school year to facilitate the development of a Multi-Tiered problem-solving model for student behavior.
