Integrated Student Supports
Providing integrated student supports for children and youth is best achieved by expanding multi-tiered systems of support model (MTSS) in a joint effort between a school district and its community partners. School-wide academic and behavioral interventions serve as preventative efforts that benefit all students.
Tier I Supports
All students can benefit from universal Tier I supports which are accessible to all students and part of the school's environment
Examples: Community Resource Centers, College & Career Fairs, School-wide Programs
Tier II Supports
Targeted Tier II supports are interventions that address risk in a group with common needs.
Examples: Tutoring, Support Groups & Targeted Clubs, Workshops
Tier III Supports
Select Tier III supports are more intensive interventions that provide individualized support.
Examples: Anything that needs to be case-managed
Priority 1: Build up partnerships and connections for local efforts - “Creative Community Connections”. (focus on rural community voice and outreach)
Priority 2: Awareness building around what MTSS is in school districts and community based organizations
Priority 3: Promote and facilitate social and emotional learning. Raise awareness.
Priority 4: Build Parent awareness
Priority 5: Advocate for MTSS and ISS.
