Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
ABC utilizes the Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) model to provide all students with the opportunity to succeed academically and behaviorally. Our integrated MTSS model includes two systematic approaches, Academic Response to Intervention (RTI) and school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). The Academic Response to Intervention (RTI) model is an approach that improves achievement for individual students as well as their schools and districts. RTI is a preventative approach that uses high-quality universal intervention for ALL students, with additional tiered supports provided for children in need. The Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework is similar to RTI in its preventative approach, but focuses on students’ behavior and socio-emotional well-being. ABCUSD is proud to have implented PBIS at 24 schools districtwide, with plans to include additional sites in the future. Use the tabs to the right to learn more about MTSS and PBIS in ABCUSD.
