About MTSS

  • Response to Intervention (RtI) is a framework for meeting the instructional needs of all learners through a variety of support services and interventions. However, it is traditionally used to describe an academic intervention framework.  This is the primary reason that LISD is moving to an MTSS framework.  Multi-tiered system of supports, or MTSS, is a system that includes a framework for meeting the academic, behavior, and social-emotional needs of a learner.  It begins with high-quality instruction, positive behavior systems, universal screening and data analysis.  When learners are not yet proficient, despite high-quality core instruction and positive behavior support, the MTSS team comes together in a problem-solving setting to identify the academic, behavioral, and/or social-emotional needs of those learners.

    As a parent or staff member, you should contact the campus to get assistance for your child or student through the MTSS team.  

    MTSS is:

    • a problem-solving approach
    • an intervention plan for GROWTH
    • an evidence-based framework

    MTSS is not:

    • an action verb
    • a place or a room on the campus
    • a pathway to Special Education
