With MTSS, all students participate in the core curriculum, with those students with greater needs receiving 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. Through progress monitoring and a problem solving approach, academic and behavioral performance data are guided for student success.
TIER I: UNIVERSAL CORE INSTRUCTION
Tier I is the foundation of the MTSS Framework. It is the School-Wide, Universal Core Curriculum.
TIER II: TARGETED INTERVENTIONS
Refers to Small Group Interventions provided in addition to Tier I with ongoing, documented progress monitoring.
TIER III: INTENSIVE INTERVENTIONS
Individual interventions provided in addition to Tier I and II with ongoing, documented progress monitoring.
At Bloom Township HSD 206, every student has equitable access with ALL students and staff
participating as members of the multi-tiered system of supports. With MTSS, all students have
access to culturally- and linguistically-relevant practices that are layered from universal (every
student) to targeted (some students), to intensive (few students) in order to support the academic and
behavioral needs of every student.
SD 206 is refining our supports in order to increase early identification and support of students with
learning and behavior needs. The MTSS process begins with high-quality instruction and universal
screening of all students in the general education classroom. Our goal is to provide interventions at
increasing levels of intensity to accelerate student learning and assist students with successfully
reaching future outcomes.
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.
