  • Multi-Tiered System of Supports/Response to Intervention (MTSS/RtI)

    A Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a seamless prevention framework that integrates all students. It 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, Response to Instruction and Intervention (RtI), and Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is often spoken of synonymously, and for those new to MTSS, it can be difficult to determine what people mean when these terms are used interchangeably. It is important to keep in mind, though, that MTSS is a framework for aligning resources and initiatives; it is a method of organization. As such, MTSS encompasses both RtI and PBIS and systematically addresses support for all students.

    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. MTSS provides the structure for the District to prioritize the academic and behavioral needs of all students, including our Students with Disabilities (SWDs), students with advanced learning needs, and English Language Learners (ELL).

    In Broward County Public Schools (BCPS), MTSS promotes a well-integrated system, where the needs of all learners are identified and supported early through increasing levels of instructional intensity and time. MTSS involves the application of implementation science and the integration of a student support framework into one coherent system. MTSS provides high-quality, standards-based instruction and intervention that is matched to students’ academic, behavioral and social needs to maximize the impact on student outcomes.

    Multi-Tiered   System of   Supports (MTSS)  refers to all the instructional strategies, interventions, and other resources that are used to help all students achieve. An effective system blends culturally responsive academic and behavior supports to create effective environments that address a range of student needs.
