About Our Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS)
NC MTSS is a multi-tiered framework which promotes school improvement for ALL students through engaging, research-based academic and behavioral practices. MTSS employs a systemic means of problem-solving data (student outcomes and implementation data) and uses that information to improve outcomes for ALL students and to provide needed supports to classroom teachers. In addition, MTSS offers systemic supports that allow for alignment of resources that results in a healthy school culture with common language, aligned teaming structures, purposeful communication, adequate professional development and coaching, and positive student outcomes.
The critical components of MTSS are:
- Data-based Problem Solving
- Data Evaluation
- Three Tiers of Instruction/Intervention
- Building Capacity/Infrastructure for Implementation
- Communication and Collaboration
