School districts use the school improvement process to build an infrastructure of evidence-based, system-wide practices to ensure that every student achieves to high standards. This includes ongoing monitoring of the effectiveness of instruction and intervention with rapid response to academic and behavioral needs. The term MTSS was first used in Kansas to refer to this comprehensive system that includes both RTI and PBIS initiatives. The term MTSS is now used broadly at both federal and state levels.

School Improvement

MTSS is a guiding framework for school improvement activities
to address the academic and behavioral achievement of all students.

Creating a Multi-Tiered System of Support

The process of creating a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is a thoughtful and intentional redesign of educational practices and supports provided by general education and entitlement programs, such as Title I and special education, to ensure that the individual needs of all students are being met in the most effective and efficient way possible. The design and implementation of MTSS is a multi-year process. Creating the structures necessary and implementing an integrated and sustainable multi-tier system is a process that is likely to take two to five years, depending on current practices and structures within a building.
