Multi-tiered System of Supports MTSS


What is MTSS?


In California, MTSS is an integrated, comprehensive framework that focuses on CCSS, core instruction, differentiated learning, student-centered learning, individualized student needs, and the alignment of systems necessary for all students’ academic, behavioral, and social success. California has a long history of providing numerous systems of support. These include interventions within the RtI2 processes, supports for Special Education, Title I, Title III, support services for English Learners, American-Indian students, and gifted and talented students. MTSS offers the potential to create needed systematic change through intentional design and redesign of services and supports that quickly identify and match the needs of all students.

Cambrian School District staff members are developing our framework so that we can more effectively coordinate our efforts across all our schools and support systems. 

CSD, in partnership with a number of Santa Clara County of Education, will continue to explore, engage, and implement the 3 cornerstones of the MTSS framework: 

  1. Tiered System of Instruction & Intervention
  2. Comprehensive Assessment System, and 
  3. Systematic Problem Solving
