MTSS

MTSS
Defined by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, “NC MTSS is a multi-tiered framework which promotes school improvement through engaging, research-based academic and behavioral practices. NC MTSS employs a systems approach using data-driven problem-solving to maximize growth for all.”


MTSS Tiers
● Core Instruction- on grade level academic and/or behavioral (e.g., social-emotional, attendance, discipline) instruction that includes
differentiation for struggling students as well as students working above grade level.

● Supplemental Instruction (in addition to Core Instruction)-acceleration and/or remediation in prerequisite grade level skills for students who are at-risk academically or behaviorally, or enrichment for students working above grade level.

● Intensive Instruction (in addition to Core and Supplemental Instruction)-more intensive or more frequent instruction on prerequisite grade level skills for students who are at-risk academically and/or behaviorally, or more intensive enrichment opportunities for students performing well above grade level.

Key Principles of MTSS
•Early intervention

•Multi-tiered model of service delivery that provides a continuum of support

•Instruction matched learners’ needs 

•Progress monitoring data collected regularly to ensure effectiveness of instruction

•Research-based interventions and instruction

•Interventions implemented consistently and correctly

•Parent involvement is encouraged throughout the child’s educational journey

Benefits of MTSS
 •Improved education for ALL students

•Proactive approach rather than reactive

•Progress monitoring data yields relevant, easily understood information

•Facilitates collaboration among educators, families and community-members

Role of the parent/guardian in MTSS
Parents play a critical role in supporting what their children are learning in school. Research has demonstrated that the more parents are involved in student learning, the higher the student achievement. Parents can be involved in the process by communicating any concerns to the child’s teacher, providing insight into their child’s learning and development, and assisting with identified interventions at home.
