Multi-Tired System of Supports

PBIS- POSITIVE BEHAVIORAL INTERVENTIONS AND SUPPORTS

Please see the list below of various programs, support systems, practices, and interventions that are integrated into the PBIS framework that promote positive school climate and student achievement:

WHAT IS THE MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORTS (MTSS)?

The multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) is a framework that supports success for all students that:

  • provides early academic and behavioral help, rather than waiting for a student to fail;

  • provides an improved way for school teams to meet the individual needs of your child;

  • provides instruction at different levels or tiers depending on the needs of each student; and

  • is available to all students to help them succeed and to increase student achievement.

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF A MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORTS (MTSS)?

The goals of the multi-tiered system of supports are to:

  • improve the quality of instruction;

  • prevent unnecessary academic and behavioral failure;

  • provide proven, or evidence-based, interventions for all students;

  • prevent unnecessary referral to special education;

  • prevent, rather than react to, student difficulties;

  • involve and support parents as partners in the MTSS process; and

  • to support teachers’ use of effective instructional strategies and practices.
