Every student’s learning experience is different, and not all learn in the same way or at the same pace. A multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) offers a framework in which to provide high quality instruction and interventions matched to student need. 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 a 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 a MTSS is and its impact on 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.
Once educators understand the theory and process of a MTSS, CORE Instructional Implementation Experts 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.
A MTSS requires 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 changes in process and performance that are needed for a MTSS to truly impact student achievement.
