Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)

  • The vision of Yelm Community Schools is to prepare ALL students for post-secondary pathways, careers, and civic engagement.

    A Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a service delivery framework focused on prevention and problem solving for all students. 

    An integrated MTSS connects all of the academic and non-academic interventions, supports, and services available in schools and communities to support instruction and eliminate barriers to learning and teaching. Within an MTSS framework, multiple levels of instruction, assessment, and intervention are designed to meet the academic and non-academic needs of ALL students.
