Integrated Student Supports
The Multi-Tiered Systems of Support model (MTSS) is a joint effort between a school district and its community partners, providing integrated student support for children and youths. Under this model, school-wide academic and behavioral supports serve as preventative efforts that benefit all students.
Tier I Supports
All students benefit from universal Tier I supports which are easily accessible 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, with a focus on rural community voice and outreach
Priority 2: Building awareness in school districts and community based organizations around what MTSS is
Priority 3: Promote and facilitate social and emotional learning. Raise awareness.
Priority 4: Build parent awareness
Priority 5: Advocate for MTSS and ISS.
