Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
Sartell-St. Stephen recognizes that students have a variety of academic and behavioral needs. To support our students, we have adopted the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) framework.
Our goal is to ensure the success of all students. The MTSS framework uses data-based decisions to meet the academic, social, emotional, and behavioral needs of students.
When MTSS is fully implemented…
- All students will receive instruction that aligns with their unique needs.
- All students will make one or more years of growth annually.
- All staff will deliver evidence-based instruction that aligns with the unique needs of students.
- The achievement and opportunity gaps among various student groups will be eliminated.
- All parents/families and stakeholders will be well-informed of Sartell - St. Stephen’s MTSS framework.
