Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a school-wide, multi-level prevention system that is implemented to increase student achievement and reduce behavioral problems. The MTSS system provides different levels of support using evidence-based interventions. In addition, decision-making is data-driven. In Georgia, MTSS is also known as Georgia’s Tiered System of Supports for Students. Georgia’s Tiered System of Supports for Students supports Georgia’s Systems of Continuous Improvement which is a problem-solving model that includes identifying needs, selecting interventions, implementing a plan, and examining progress. Georgia’s Tiered System of Supports for Students provides support for all students by aligning with other school frameworks and initiatives such as Response to Intervention (RTI), Student Support Team (SST), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS), Student Mental Health (SMH) and Wrap Around Services (WRAP) to help support the whole child.
