Multi-Tiered Systems of Support for Behavior (MTSS-B) supports all students in Lincoln Public Schools. Grounded in almost 40 years of research, MTSS-B is a framework to organize our evidence-based practices for supporting all students. MTSS-B has three tiers of behavioral supports:
- Tier 1 is for all students. They assure that students are taught school expectations, that positive behavior is acknowledged, and corrective feedback is provided.
- Tier 2 is for some students. They provide students with additional instruction, practice and feedback on the school wide expectations.
- Tier 3 is for a few students. They are focused more on the individual student’s needs and provide students with focused instruction and guidance to meet expectations. All supports at Tier 1 and 2 are included at Tier 3.
Data is used by teams to review if supports are in place and working. Tier 1 supports are constant and consistent. Tier 2 and Tier 3 supports are constantly monitored so we can effectively meet the needs of students receiving assistance.
At Clinton Elementary, we have all three tiers of support for students. In this way, we know we are helping all students learn the academic and behavior skills necessary for success in and out of school.
