Multi-Tiered System of Support Framework (MTSS)

Madison School District creates a comprehensive and robust MTSS framework and uses evidence-based instruction, intervention, and assessment practices to ensure that every student receives the appropriate level of support based on their level of need. MTSS is a framework that supports educators in providing equitable, targeted, and data-driven support so that students will grow and reach their full potential.  Attention is focused on creating and sustaining academic and social-emotional/behavior supports for all levels: Tier 1 universal support, Tier 2 targeted additional support, and Tier 3 intensive support. The goal of MTSS is to eliminate barriers to learning and enable every student to successfully reach their full potential.
