Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)

SCUSD is shifting services to a Response to Intervention (RTI) model for all students:

  • to better accommodate in the individual needs of all students, 
  • to be in compliance with state and federal guidelines, and
  • to align with recommended best practice.

RTI is a methodology that encompasses:

  • Curriculum-based assessments of academic progress 
  • Quality/ Researched-based interventions matched to student needs 
  • Frequent progress monitoring data collection
  • Frequent review of progress monitoring data to inform educational decisions

RTI follows the following core assumptions:

  • that the educational system can effectively teach all children 
  • that early intervention is critical to preventing loss of educational services 
  • that the implementation of a multi-tiered service delivery model is necessary 
  • that a problem solving model should be used to make decisions between tiers 
  • that research based interventions should be implemented to the extent possible 
  • that progress monitoring must be implemented to inform instruction 
  • that data should drive decision making.
