District 11 Mission for Rti and Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)
To provide a prevention-based framework, including layered interventions designed to flexibly meet the needs of all students and apply a data-driven approach to ensure tiered supports for behavior and academic needs are improving student outcomes. As a district level team, we enhance capacity to implement and sustain the tiered system of supports, through training and resources, ultimately empowering schools, teams, teachers, and students to improve outcomes.
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS), addressing both behavior and academics, is defined as a whole-school, data-driven, prevention-based framework for improving learning outcomes for EVERY student through a layered continuum of evidence-based practices and systems.
The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) targets 6 essential components and a layering of supports for effective MTSS implementation, shown in the graphics below (CDE MTSS:)
The structured nature of tiered supports with a problem solving process meets the federal mandates of both Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA 2002) and Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA 2004) and supports Colorado legislative priorities SB10-191(Educator Effectiveness), the READ Act, CAP4K (Colorado Achievement Plan for Kids), Bullying Prevention, and Parent Engagement in Schools.
