 Georgia MTSS Application 2018


Georgia’s Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is a continuum of evidence-based, system-wide practices to support a rapid response to academic and behavioral needs with frequent data-based monitoring for decision making to empower each Georgia student to achieve high standards.  MTSS provides multi-phase training and ongoing support for refinement and sustainability purposes to districts to implement the integrated academic, behavior and social framework. To achieve Georgia’s MTSS, resources must be used effectively and efficiently to enable students to be successful.  Georgia MTSS does not automatically require additional resources or add on to existing practices.  Instead, it involves evaluating current practices, identifying practices that yield evidence of effectiveness, addressing areas that are missing and replacing ineffective or inefficient approaches with those that are supported by research.  Georgia MTSS should become one of the primary guiding frameworks for a continuous, data-based, school improvement process supporting academic, social emotional and behavioral achievement of all students to prepare them to be successful high school graduates.

Georgia MTSS is funded through the State Personnel Development Grant and is designed as a multi-year project with cascading supports.  Implementation will be supported by the state team, regional teams, district teams, school teams, students and their families.  Georgia MTSS will work with cohorts of local school districts to provide support in measurement and evaluation, professional learning and technical assistance, including coaching, necessary to support implementation.
