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
