Utilizing a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) is a common framework schools and districts utilize to support students. One common pitfall that implementing teams have found into is the over- and/or under-identification of students needing advanced tiers of support. This session will provide a brief overview of the MTSS framework, introducing key terminology of base rates and serviceable base rates.
