Springtown ISD Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)

  • Our Mission: 

    To provide all students with an educational program that will allow them to develop to their potential, to be well-adjusted, and able to make positive contributions to a free enterprise society

    Our Vision:

    To provide efficient and effective school processes which result in success for all students

    MTSS Goals:

    Springtown ISD believes a Multi Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework will help achieve our school and community’s commitment to this mission.  MTSS is a problem-solving and prevention model with strong evidence of success.  MTSS uses data-based decision making to inform academic and behavioral instruction and intervention based on individual student needs.  As a result of our commitment to developing an effective support system for all students, we have partnered with Branching Minds as our primary tool for understanding why students are struggling, finding interventions that match student needs, and monitoring progress effectively and collaboratively.

    Our goal for our students: The MTSS framework of support allows them to be known, respected and supported across the diversity of their learning needs, so they may achieve success in their academics, personal relationships, and eventual careers.

    Our goal for our educators: They see this MTSS framework as a way to support all students more effectively, more easily, and more efficiently. We aim to streamline the collection and documentation of observations and student data - as well as the planning and reporting process required for differentiation and intervention, so we can enable our teachers to spend more time building relationships with their students, delivering personalized support, and experiencing professional success.

    Multi-Tiered System of Supports

    Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a collaborative, evidence-based, approach to differentiating and personalizing instruction and intervention, across academics and behavior for all students—so that every student can achieve academic and life success. MTSS is one of the most effective ways to provide an equitable educational experience, because it leverages collective knowledge and expertise to help teachers understand their learners' needs and make informed and strategic decisions that best support them.
