Multi-tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)

Response to Intervention (RtI) is a multi-tiered system of support to help all learners.  The RtI process starts with high-quality instruction (Tier 1) delivered to every student. Then, using a data-based decision-making process, struggling learners or students with behavioral needs are identified and provided specific individualized support (Tier 2 and Tier 3).  

A successful RtI system contains these main components – 

  • District/ Campus RtI Team:  This team is composed of an administrator, interventionist/coaches, classroom teacher, counselor, parent, and diagnostician, LSSP, or SPED teacher, when needed.  This team meets frequently (at least once per grading period) to analyze data and make decisions for each individual student based on that data.  
  • Universal Screener:  A quick norm-referenced test that identifies those students who may be at risk in both academic and behavioral categories.  
  • Progress Monitoring:  A way to assess a student’s performance over time and to quantify a student’s rate of improvement.  Progress monitoring must represent the student’s academic development and guide instructional planning.  
  • High-Quality Instruction:  This applies to all three tiers and should be based upon valid research to prove it is successful when implemented with fidelity.
