"MTSS is a model that empowers teachers, new and seasoned, and provides a framework that supports differentiating instructions for a wide variety of learners. Knowledge of MTSS concepts, language, interventions and supports, and implementation strategies can help early career educators in developing the structure of their classroom across behavior, social emotional, and academic domains."
"MTSS has provided us with a consistent process to analyze school wide data. As a result, we now have targeted school or grade level goals that are focused on the areas of need and are short term and realistic. We have one team that addresses both the academic and behavior needs of students, reviews the intervention data regularly, and makes adjustments as needed."
"Using MTSS has enabled us to identify students at risk and use a process to gather data. Having knowledge and experience of MTSS has enabled me to manage my data gathering efficiently and prepared me to be more effective when presenting information on a student."
"Teachers work in a world that's ever changing. There always seems to be something new to learn, with new initiatives, protocols, evaluation guidelines, etc. cropping up endlessly. But one thing that's here to stay, and makes a lot of sense for everyone, is MTSS. A multi-tiered system of supports is not only designed to benefit our kids, it's here for us, too. Putting the framework of MTSS around everything we are doing and unifying our efforts in the areas of behavior, social-emotional learning, and academics has immensely tightened up our efficiency, transparency, and unity of purpose. We also were able to identify places we were falling short."
"MTSS continues to be making change within our district. At the high school, we are implementing more positive behavioral reinforcements, attempting to be clear with expectations, and involving teachers and student leaders in conversations to continue on working to build a positive school culture."
