Advancing best practices in Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) at the secondary level throughout North Carolina
The North Carolina MTSS (formerly RtI) Consortium was formed in 2010 to catalyse implementation in nearby North Carolina districts of “Multi-Tiered Systems of Support” (MTSS): the process of providing high quality instruction and interventions to struggling students, frequently monitoring their progress to make changes in instruction or goals, and applying student response data to educational decisions. While an earlier grant focused on elementary schools, this grant supports the adoption of RTI in middle and high schools.
“The purpose and passion behind my work is helping students and teachers identify WHY a particular student or group of students is struggling and WHAT can be done to address and overcome it. Shifting the educational mindset from reactionary to preventative has been quite the challenge…the consortium has not only re-energized me but has also helped me learn how to put theory to practice...”
