Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS)
The California Department of Education's definition of Multi-Tiered System of Support and a comparison between it and Response to Instruction and Intervention.
In California, MTSS is an integrated, comprehensive framework that focuses on CCSS, core instruction, differentiated learning, student-centered learning, individualized student needs, and the alignment of systems necessary for all students’ academic, behavioral, and social success. California has a long history of providing numerous systems of support. MTSS offers the potential to create needed systematic change through intentional design and redesign of services and supports that quickly identify and match the needs of all students.
