    MTSS takes a proactive approach to identifying students with academic or behavioral needs. Early assessment and intervention for these students can help them catch up with their peers sooner. The key components of MTSS include:

    • Universal screening of all students early in the school year

    • Tiers of interventions that can be amplified in response to levels of need

    • Ongoing data collection and continual assessment

    • Schoolwide approach to expectations and supports

    • Parent involvement
