What is MTSS-B?

Multi-Tiered systems of support for behavior includes proactive strategies, for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments.

Research supports that the MTSS framework, implemented with fidelity, provides a school-wide, systematic, tiered approach that leads to increased student achievement and reduced classroom disruptions and student suspensions.

More importantly, MTSS is not a curriculum, program, intervention or practice but is a decision-making framework that guides selection and implementation of research based practices and interventions for improving student outcomes for all students.

Tier 1 Supports:

  • Tier 1 includes all the supports offered to all students to help students meet behavior expectations.

Tier 2 Supports:

  • Tier 2 is designed to provide targeted group interventions to support students who are needing additional supports.

Tier 3 Supports:

  • Tier 3 is designed to provide individualized interventions.  For each intervention, either FBA/BIP or WRAP/RENEW, an individualized team specific to the student and the student’s needs is developed.
