Welcome to the MTSS Center

Since 2007, the MTSS Center has been a national leader in supporting states, districts, and schools across the country in implementing an MTSS framework that integrates data and instruction within a multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and support students’ social, emotional, and behavior needs from a strengths-based perspective.

News & Highlights: Implementing MTSS

Snapshot of MTSS Implementation

This infographic illustrates the major steps of MTSS implementation within schools. Each benchmark period, schools will screen all students to evaluate their level of risk and respond to that data to ensure each student receives the level of support they need. For students receiving targeted or intensive intervention, schools will conduct progress monitoring to evaluate the effectiveness of the level of support provided and determine if changes are needed. Critical to successful implementation is the fourth step, evaluating the overall efficiency and effectiveness of the process. In doing so, schools can improve their MTSS implementation through an iterative process.
