Multi-Tier System of Supports


Kent ISD is working with Michigan's Integrated Behavior and Learning Support Initiative to develop structures for supporting our districts in the implementation of Multi-Tier System of Supports.

Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS) is a framework to provide all students with the best opportunities to succeed academically and behaviorally in school. MTSS focuses on
• providing high quality instruction and interventions matched to student need.
• monitoring progress frequently to make decisions about changes in instruction or goals.
• using data are to allocate resources to improve student learning.
• supporting staff implementation of effective practices.
