MTSS Leadership Preparedness Checklist

Make sure your leadership team is prepared to support the implementation of Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) in your district or school site. Have you taken all of the following steps to build a solid foundation for MTSS?

CORE MTSS Preparedness

Develop Leadership Capacity to Support MTSS

CORE has worked with hundreds of districts and schools to guide effective MTSS implementation and ensure program sustainability. The Designing and Implementing Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) Institute assists school leadership teams to implement MTSS as a coordinated PreK-12 system of academic behavior support designed to ensure all students get off to a healthy start and to help facilitate early and appropriately intensive evidence-based interventions for students at risk.

This three-day Institute is for district and site leadership teams, including special education leadership, and focuses on PreK-12 academics within MTSS. It begins with key, yet compact, background knowledge that differentiates MTSS from Response to Intervention (RtI) and includes 10 of the most important lessons learned in decades of school-based implementation. The MTSS Institute also details:

  • Key roles of school leaders, including principals and teachers
  • Which school-based teams perform which roles and functions
  • Comprehensive and proactive designing of coordinated, evidence-based reading, language arts and mathematics instruction and interventions across tiers of increasing intensity
  • Strategies for increasing instruction and intervention intensity
  • The use of scientifically sound assessment measures for universal screening and progress monitoring
  • Processes for determining whether students qualify for special education due to a specific learning disability, and the creation of more appropriately specific and rigorous individualized education program (IEP) goals
  • Process for determining MTSS readiness and evaluating the fidelity of implementation
