Evaluate Your School's Violence Prevention MTSS
BCPS is committed to providing the highest quality education in a safe, respectful and violence-free environment. Violence prevention and intervention efforts are embedded in a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS). Tiers of support increase in intensity as individual student and school needs dictate - at the universal (Tier 1), targeted (Tier 2), and intense individualized (Tier 3) levels.
