Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is a systemic, continuous-improvement framework in which data-based problem solving and decision-making is practiced across all levels of the educational system for supporting students. The framework of MTSS utilizes high-quality evidence-based instruction, intervention, and assessment practices to ensure that every student receives the appropriate level of support to be successful. A Multi-Tiered System of Supports helps schools and districts to organize resources through alignment of academic standards and behavioral expectations in order to enable every child to successfully reach their fullest potential.
Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) is a multi-tiered framework for establishing systems of social-emotional and behavioral support that enhance schools’ capacity to maximize outcomes for all students. The tiered system allows for the provision of a continuum of school-wide, targeted and individual interventions supports related to the social-emotional, behavioral and academic needs of all students.
