Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is a multi-tiered framework, which promotes school improvement through engaging, research-based academics and behavioral practices. NC MTSS employs a systems approach using data-driven problem solving to maximize growth for all.
Every NC Pre K-12 public education system implements and sustains all components of a Multi-Tiered System of Support to ensure college and career readiness for all students.
NCDPI will prepare and support LEAs to implement a Multi-Tiered System of Support for total school improvement by providing professional development, coaching and technical assistance, research and evaluation, and communication and visibility that result in college and career readiness for all students. NCDPI believes that MTSS is the most effective and efficient approach to improving school outcomes and student performance thereby ensuring equitable access to a sound basic education.
