  • Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) for Families

    • What is NC MTSS?

      • This linked infographic is intended to support NC families in understanding what NC educators are referring to when they are talking about an MTSS. Family engagement within an MTSS is defined as the active and meaningful partnerships that educators build and maintain with students’ families for the purpose of supporting student learning. It embodies the idea that all parties are equally invested in the student’s educational experience and all parties bring knowledge and skills of equal value to the table to work together.

    • What is Support?​

      • This linked infographic is intended to promote understanding and conversations around how school teams are providing these supports to all, some, and a few students based on needs. NC schools that are implementing an MTSS may talk about support for students. To further define that support, NC organizes these supports around the instruction, the curriculum, and the environment.
