MTSS (Multi-Tiered Systems of Support)

  • Delaware MTSS Resources

    MTSS is a framework that is designed to meet the needs of the whole child through an integrated multi-level prevention system. MTSS uses team-based leadership, and data-based decision making, to meet the academic and non-academic needs of all students. High quality core academic instruction and non academic practices are provided as universal supports to all children. Evidence-based intervention and supports are matched to student needs and informed by ongoing progress monitoring and additional assessments.

    How can families get involved?

    • Ask how MTSS works in your child’s school
    • Talk to your child’s teacher about your child’s strengths and needs—Check out PIC’s ‘Talking with your Child’s Teacher’ for specific tips you can use when sharing information about your child
