MTSS-Promoting School Improvement for ALL Students
NC MTSS is a multi-tiered framework, which promotes school improvement through engaging, research-based academic and behavioral practices. NC MTSS employs a systems approach using data-driven problem solving to maximize growth for all.
Tier I: Differentiated Core
Instruction that includes general academic, behavioral and social-emotional instruction and support designed and differentiated for ALL students. In a healthy Core, 80% of students meet and/or exceed state and locally developed standards with Core instruction alone.
Tier II: Supplemental Instruction Support
Instruction includes evidence-based programs and practices to supplement/improve student performance in Core. In a healthy system, approximately 15-20% of students need supplemental support in addition to Core/Tier I instruction.
Tier III: Intensive Instruction
Instruction includes evidence-based programs and practices to supplement/improve student performance in Core. In a healthy system, approximately 5% of students need intensive support in addition to Core/Tier I and Supplemental/Tier II.
