Multi-Tiered System of Supports/Response to Intervention (MTSS/RTI):
What & Why
Multi-Tiered System of Supports/ Response to Intervention (MTSS/RTI) is a collaborative, evidence-based, approach to differentiating and personalizing instruction and intervention, across academics, behavior, and social-emotional learning (SEL) for all students—so that every student has the opportunity to achieve academic and life success. MTSS/RTI is one of the most effective ways to provide an equitable educational experience because it leverages collective knowledge and expertise to help teachers understand their learners' needs and make informed and strategic decisions that best support them.
For more information click on the Multi-tiered Systems of Support and Response to Intervention tab and reach out to your campus teachers or administrators.
