A Multi-Tiered System of Supports is a systemic, continuous framework predicated on high-quality first instruction, data-based decision making, evidence-based interventions, and assessment practices that are applied across all levels of the system to align resources and support necessary for each student's academic, behavior, and social success.
Background and Purpose
The District embraces a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework as part of the strategic effort to meet the academic, behavioral, and social-emotional needs of the District's diverse student population. The District is focused on transformation to support all students through access to a coherent system of supports using a "whole child" approach.
While the District has made significant improvements in key areas, achievement disparities among student groups persist. The LAUSD is committed to reducing disparities in an intentional manner that directly addresses and removes the barriers to learning and teaching.
"Tiers do not describe students. They describe the intensity of core instruction and accelerated interventions."
