Multi-Tiered Systems of Support

  • Multi-Tiered Systems of Support/Response to Intervention (MTSS/RtI) is a multi-tiered approach to the early identification and support of students with academic and behavioral needs. The MTSS/RtI process begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all children in the general education classroom. Struggling learners are provided with interventions by a variety of personnel at increasing levels of intensity and duration to increase their rate of learning. Progress is closely monitored to assess both the rate of learning and level of performance of individual students. Educational decisions regarding the intensity and duration of interventions are based on individual students' response to those interventions. MTSS/RtI is designed for use when making decisions in either general education or special education, creating a well-integrated system of instruction and intervention guided by the individual child's outcome data. Students whose performance and rate progresses in their classroom, school, or district lags behind that of their peers receive more specialized remediation or intervention within general education.
