Multi-Tiered System of Support

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is an umbrella framework that includes Response to Intervention (RTI) for academics, behavior and social/emotional components.

The purpose of an MTSS framework is to provide all students with the best opportunities to succeed in school, identify students with learning problems and ensure that they receive appropriate instruction and related supports. The goals of MTSS are to (a) integrate all the resources to minimize risk for the long-term negative consequences associated with poor learning due to academic, behavioral or social/emotional difficulties, and (b) strengthen the process of disability identification.
