Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS)
The Curriculum Department and TaC staff support county educational entities with the use of a standards-aligned, comprehensive school improvement and/or multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) for implementing PA’s Standards Aligned System (SAS). MTSS rests on using a continuum of student performance data to continuously inform, monitor and improve student access and response to high-quality core and supplemental instruction/intervention. Through a multi-tiered system of support, implementers have a road map for facilitating systems change within the context of data-based decision-making and instructional matching. The intent of MTSS is to improve learning as efficiently, effectively and equitably as possible for ALL students, including students with disabilities. It is an “Every Ed” standards-aligned initiative.
