Multi-Tiered System Of Supports (MTSS)



With MTSS, all students participate in the core curriculum, while students with greater needs receive one or two additional tiers of  intervention to provide additional support beyond the core curriculum. MTSS is a comprehensive tiered model of support to address the full range of students’ academic and behavioral needs.  Academics is framed through Response to Intervention (RTI) and Behavior is framed through Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS). Through progress monitoring and a problem solving approach, academic and behavioral  performance data are guided for student success.

The MTSS Framework consists of 3 Tiers

At Bloom Township HSD 206, ALL students will have equitable access with all staff participating as members of the multi-tiered system of supports. With MTSS, all students will have access to culturally- and linguistically-relevant practices that are layered from the universal layer (every student) to the targeted layer (some students), to the intensive layer (few students) in order to support the academic and behavioral needs of every student.


The MTSS process begins with high-quality instruction and universal screening of all students in the general education classroom.  In addition to the universal Tier 1 instruction, MTSS will provide additional tiers of support, via interventions, at increasing levels of intensity to accelerate student learning and assist students with successfully reaching future outcomes.

Bloom HSD 206’s MTSS process will include the following essential components delivered along a continuum to meet the full spectrum of social, emotional, behavioral, and academic needs of students. 

  • A Proactive and Preventative Focus on Student Success
  • Universal Screenings (which identify students who may be at-risk academically and/or behaviorally)
  • High Quality & Explicit Instruction
  • Use of Decision-Making Rules
  • Evidence-Based, Systematic, Interventions
  • Routine Progress Monitoring & Data Analysis
  • Data-Based Decision-Making to Adjust Instruction / Interventions
  • Team-Based Problem Solving
  • Parent and Community Voice and Involvement

Paramount to this process is family engagement. When schools inform parents and families
frequently of their student’s progress, families become more active and meaningful participants in the
school’s educational effort.
