Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) for Families


What is NC MTSS?

Family engagement within an MTSS is defined as the active and meaningful partnerships that educators build and maintain with students and 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"?

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.
