Multi-Tiered System of Supports

Multi-Tiered System of SupportsMTSSLOGOnew82019.JPG

Pennsylvania’s Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is a standards-aligned, comprehensive school improvement FRAMEWORK for enhancing academic, behavioral and social-emotional outcomes for ALL students. Response to Intervention (RTI) refers to the methodology that is used to determine how slow is slow (rate of growth) and how low is low (student’s level of performance), as an alternative to ability-achievement discrepancy within the Specific Learning Disability (SLD) Determination process.

Cross-disciplinary teams represented at the district, school, grade and individual levels use a problem-solving process to integrate evidence-based academic, behavioral and social-emotional practices matched to student needs and with fidelity of implementation. A continuum of supports and services exists at all Tiers and is undergirded by high-quality professional learning, cultural responsivity, partnership and meaningful involvement with families, and dynamic decision-making that rests on the use of reliable and valid data sources. Sustainability (transformational change) is the ultimate implementation goal of a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) and is very much contingent upon Leadership, Organization and Competency.

For more information about MTSS within the Commonwealth’s Approved ESSA Plan, please visit http://www.education.pa.gov/K-12/ESSA/Pages/Consolidated-State-Plan.aspx and each of PaTTAN’s Initiatives including Literacy, Mathematics, STEM, SSIP and Behavior for a continuum of high-quality, evidence-based training and technical assistance resources for adoption within tiered systems.
