Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
a framework for improving student learning
MTSS is an educational framework for continuous improvement, problem-solving and decision-making. It promotes an integrated system, connecting general and special education, along with all teaching and learning components, into a high-quality, standards-based instruction and intervention framework that can be adapted to meet students’ academic, social-emotional and behavior needs — from preschool to graduation.
A more complete discussion of RTI for school personnel is available on the Nebraska Department of Education web site.
