Multi Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS):
ALL students are supported academically and behaviorally to be college, career, and community ready within a positive and productive learning environment. We accomplish this through an integrated framework of high quality instruction, supported by a continuum of services, data-based decision making, collaboration, and shared leadership.
MTSS provides a framework in which schools can deliver early intervening services. It is a systematic prevention approach, the foundation of which is quality core instruction within the general education classroom. MTSS processes focus on how well students respond to changes in instruction or "interventions". Supplementary supports and interventions, both academic and behavioral, are provided to struggling students based on data collection and analysis. These supports and interventions vary in intensity based on student need, and will be provided by a variety of personnel, working collaboratively with general education and special education teachers.
There are six essential components the BPS MTSS framework: Assessment, Data-Based Decision Making, Evidenced-Based Multi-Tier Instruction, Infrastructure and Support Mechanisms, Fidelity and Evaluation, and School, Family, and Community Partnerships.
