MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORTS (MTSS)

Georgia’s Tiered System of Supports for Students is a framework that encompasses academics, behavior, and connectedness/well-being. A Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), once referred to as Response to Intervention (RTI), is a framework that integrates assessment and intervention within a school-wide, multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement.  In Georgia, the multi-level prevention system is demonstrated with the “pyramid of intervention” that is built of three specific, tiered layers within the pyramid, i.e., Tier I, Tier II, and Tier III.
