What is MTSS?
Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a system used to identify struggling students and provide the support they need to succeed. The Intervention Assistance Team (IAT) is the team that meets to discuss students that are struggling. This team is made up of the school Principal & Assistant Principal, School Counselor(s), the School Psychologist(s), Instructional Coach, the School Nurse and other staff members.
The IAT coordinator receives referrals from teachers, staff and parents when a student is not preforming well in school. Interventions are then put into place for the student. If progress is not made the team will meet with the parents and student to discuss further supportive options. If you feel your student needs intervention please contact their teacher or the IAT coordinator to start the process.
What is PBIS?
Ohio's Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports is a framework that guides school teams in the selection, integration and implementation of evidence-based practices for improving academic, social and behavior outcomes for all students. Read more about these guidelines here.
