LCPS Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
MTSS is an evidence-based instructional framework comprised of practices and interventions aimed at supporting the needs of all students. This holistic approach addresses academic, behavioral, and social emotional needs through the approaches of Response to Intervention (RTI), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), and school mental health.
The MTSS framework addresses student needs at three tiers, each including instructional strategies and interventions. This framework encourages schools to provide early intervention to assist in preventing or addressing academic, social-emotional, and/or behavioral difficulties early. Through problem-solving conversations and multiple sources of data, school-based teams can identify supports needed for student success.
