Multi-Level Prevention System
Response to Intervention (RTI) is embedded throughout Georgia's Tiered System of Supports for Students (Georgia's MTSS) framework. RTI is embedded within the Multi-Level Prevention System
to provide support matched to student need to maximize student achievement and improve behavioral outcomes.
Georgia's MTSS includes schoolwide implementation that focuses on the “what and how of instruction” and the provision of services and supports to students that meet their unique, whole child needs.
A multi-level prevention system is an essential component of Georgia's MTSS. The component includes three levels of intensity or prevention that is designed to improve high-quality core instruction, evidence-based interventions, and supports when used effectively within the framework.
The triangle graphic depicts the progression of support across the multi-level prevention system. The triangle represents three levels of prevention and the percentage of students that are expected to benefit from the levels of prevention in an effective system.
The levels are Tier I: Primary Level – Instruction/Core Curriculum, Tier II: Secondary Level – Intervention and Tier III: Tertiary Level - Intensive Intervention.
