Morning Star relentlessly empowers every student to succeed through an intentional multi-tiered system of support. This sustainable system guides positive, evidence-based practices, supporting students both academically and behaviorally.
A PARENT’S GUIDE to Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS)
What is MTSS?
A Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS - previously known as RtI or Response to Intervention) integrates all students in a well-integrated system. It connects general, gifted, and special education with intervention and enrichment services through high-quality, standards-based instruction and intervention that is matched to students’ academic, social and behavioral needs. Needs are identified by monitoring students’ progress in the classroom and in common areas of the school (hallways, playground, lunchroom, etc). Adjustments to instruction and intervention supports are based on students’ performance and rate of success.
Key Principles of MTSS
Intervene early and monitor student progress frequently
Use a multi-tiered model of service delivery and match instruction to the learners’ needs
Use progress-monitoring data to change instruction within each tier
Use research-based interventions and instruction
Employ practices to ensure that interventions are implemented consistently and correctly
Document and encourage parental-involvement in all steps of the process
