    As defined by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, “NC MTSS is a multi-tiered framework which promotes school improvement through engaging, research-based academic and behavioral practices. NC MTSS employs a systems approach using data-driven problem-solving to maximize growth for all.”

    The tiers of MTSS include: 

    • Core Instruction- on grade level academic and/or behavioral (e.g., social-emotional, attendance, discipline) instruction that includes differentiation for struggling students as well as students working above grade level
    • Supplemental Instruction (in addition to Core Instruction)-acceleration and/or remediation in prerequisite grade level skills for students who are at-risk academically or behaviorally, or enrichment for students working above grade level.
    • Intensive Instruction (in addition to Core and Supplemental Instruction)-more intensive or more frequent instruction on prerequisite grade level skills for students who are at-risk academically and/or behaviorally, or more intensive enrichment opportunities for students performing well above grade level.
