Every student’s learning experience is different, and not all learn in the same way or at the same pace. Multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) offer a framework in which high quality instruction and interventions are matched to the needs of each student. Whether they are struggling or have advanced learning needs, MTSS is designed to improve academic, behavioral and social-emotional outcomes for all students.
CORE helps schools and districts create successful and sustainable MTSS frameworks and coaches teachers on how to identify student need, monitor student progress and adjust interventions using data-driven decision-making.
Strong leadership is essential to the long-term success of MTSS. CORE provides district and school leaders with guidance and support to develop processes, select resources, communicate their visions, and institute systems change.
CORE instructs educators on what MTSS is and how it impacts their teaching practice—the theory of multi-level instruction; how to use progress monitoring data to ensure the effectiveness of instruction and interventions; and the types of core, supplemental and intervention resources available.
CORE is committed to sustained and long-term professional learning. Once educators understand the theory and process of MTSS, CORE Instructional Implementation Experts continue to work closely with teachers to help them effectively use data to identify need and monitor student progress, differentiate instructional practices and implement interventions with fidelity.
MTSS require knowledge at all levels, resources and organizational structures. CORE works with district and school leaders to not only design and implement MTSS frameworks but to drive the long-term and sustainable changes in process and performance that are needed for MTSS to truly impact student achievement.
