• Multi-Tiered Systems of Support

    A Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a comprehensive framework comprised of a collection of research-based strategies designed to meet the individual needs and assets of the whole child. MTSS intentionally interconnects the education, health, and human service systems in support of successful learners, schools, centers, and community outcomes. The five essential components of MTSS are inter-related and complementary. The MTSS framework provides schools and districts with an efficient way to organize resources to support educators in the implementation of effective practices with fidelity so that all learners succeed.  The NC RESA MTSS Leadership Implementation Team coordinates NC RESA’s efforts to support districts in Newaygo County with effective implementation of MTSS with fidelity so that all learners can be successful.

    The five essential components of the Michigan Department of Education MTSS are:

    • Team-Based Leadership
    • Tiered Delivery System
    • Selection and Implementation of Instruction, Intervention, and Supports
    • Comprehensive Screening and Assessment System
    • Continuous Data-Based Decision-Making
