What is Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS)?
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a term used to describe an evidence-based model of schooling that uses data-based problem solving to integrate standards-based instruction, interventions, and assessments to address the full range of student academic and behavioral needs present in today’s classroom. MTSS encompasses all the academic, behavioral and social-emotional demands of learning. MTSS is a key part of the broader BCPS strategic framework to support all learners and ensure equitable access to a robust, high quality education.
