Supplemental and Intensive Tiers and Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports (MTSS)


This blog is the eighth in a monthly series centered around Multi-Tiered Systems of Supports. Last month, we discussed how assessment & data-based decision-making are focused on ensuring efficient assessment systems are used to drive effective data-based decisions within continuous improvement. This month, we are sharing the importance of supplemental & intensive tiers and their impact on MTSS.

Supplemental & Intensive Tiers and MTSS: Supplemental and Intensive Tiers are focused on ensuring learners who need additional resources, services, and interventions/support are provided the evidence-based support they need to be successful across academic and social-emotional-behavioral and mental health domains.
