Multi-Tiered Systems of Support
MTSS matches a leveled response of instruction and intervention with the needs of the individual student. Leveled instruction is categorized into three tiers of support. A determination of the level of support needed is based on student monitoring and on-going data collection. More intensive intervention strategies are provided to students based on the student’s ability to progress in the general education curriculum. Parents work collaboratively with their child’s teacher throughout the MTSS process. The MTSS team consists of our Diverse Learners’ Manager (Laura Pietrini), our Student Support Manager (Shay Frey), and other relevant members of our instructional team who are supporting the student. The team meets to review a student’s response to intervention and determine supports necessary for the student to continue to progress. If a student is not making desired progress through MTSS strategies, Christopher House Elementary School staff may begin the referral process for eligibility for an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
