MTSS/ EC DIVISION

What is MTSS?

Next Generation Academy is committed to providing high-quality instruction and support to promote the achievement of all students. Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a framework used to maximize the success of all students.  MTSS is not a special program or class, but rather a way of organizing instruction and intervention to help all students. The goal of MTSS is to provide high quality, research-based instruction and support based on data. In the multi-tiered system of supports, the progress of all students is monitored, and instruction and intervention are provided in varying intensities (multiple tiers) based on individual student need.

 

The key components of MTSS are:

  • High quality instruction in the general education setting

  • Multi-tiered model of service delivery that provides a continuum of support

  • Research based interventions matched to student needs

  • Progress monitoring data collected regularly to ensure effectiveness of instruction

 

What can I expect with MTSS?

  • Information on my child’s progress in meeting grade-level standard/expectations

  • Identification of academic or behavioral concerns

  • Instruction and intervention support that is matched to my child’s academic or behavioral needs

  • Feedback on how my child is responding to targeted and individual interventions.

 

What is the role of the parent/guardian in MTSS?

Parents play a critical role in supporting what their children are learning in school. Research has demonstrated that the more parents are involved in student learning, the higher the student achievement. Parents can be involved in the process by communicating any concerns to the child’s teacher, providing insight into their child’s learning and development, and assisting with identified goals at home.

Child Find Information

North Carolina has a continuing Child Find procedure in place to locate all children with disabilities residing in the State, including children with disabilities attending private schools, regardless of the severity of their disability, and who are in need of special education and related services. This effort also includes highly mobile children with disabilities (such as migrant and homeless children) and children who are suspected of being a child with a disability and in need of special education, even though they are advancing from grade to grade. The purpose of this procedure is to enhance public understanding of exceptional children and youth with special needs, to identify and locate the children and youth, and to inform the public of available services.
