MTSS School Teams

Teaming provides critical infrastructure support for MTSS. MTSS teams refer to the leadership team or teams that guide and support the implementation of Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). MTSS teams should be representative of all key stakeholders, including regular education, special education, administration, and family and community input. MTSS teams also have structures and clear processes in place to guide decision-making, and the teams have protected time set aside to meet on a regular basis.
