MTSS is a data-driven framework that provides responsive supports to students based on their needs. The goal of MTSS is to ensure that each student receives the level of support they need to be successful. The MTSS framework has been widely adopted within schools because of its focus on prevention, addressing the needs of all students, and its application across academics, behavior, and social and emotional learning (SEL).
Strength-based screening and assessment of social and emotional competencies is a vital component of MTSS. This guide provides an overview of MTSS and how the strength- and research-based DESSA SEL assessment system from Aperture Education can support your MTSS framework.
