Nebraska’s Multi-tiered System of Support (NeMTSS) is a framework designed through the lens of continuous improvement to guide school districts, schools, and all educators to ensure each and every student has access to learning experiences that enhance their educational outcomes. This is accomplished through a whole child approach to ensure each student’s social, emotional, behavioral, academic, and environmental needs are met from prekindergarten through graduation. Continuous improvement is not the job of one or two people, working in isolation, but rather unfolds progressively and implementation is driven by district, school, and student-level teams that are dependent upon a common purpose and collaboration. The NeMTSS Framework outlines specific skills and actions to organize, support, deliver, and drive continuous improvement.
Nebraska stakeholders have identified essential elements that are critical to implement and sustain a successful NeMTSS framework.
- Infrastructure and Shared Leadership:
Sound infrastructure and effective shared leadership are the foundation from which all the other essential elements are built. Without a strong infrastructure and effective shared leadership, it is not possible to design a strong, layered continuum of support, engage in sound data-based decision-making, or support collaboration and communication.
- Layered Continuum of Support:
Within a layered continuum, tiered supports are provided to meet the unique needs of each student. Supports are dependent on data, and there is flexibility among the tiers, allowing each student to receive the support they need, when they need it. Adults are responsible for monitoring student progress and matching the support to each student’s specific needs.
- Data-Based Decision-Making:
Meeting the needs of every student requires understanding their learning journey, the root causes of challenges, and how to provide appropriate support that addresses those root causes. Data-based decision-making involves collaboration and communication from community members and caregivers, as well as district, school, collaborative, and student support teams, using a variety of data points to identify student needs and support planning.
Supporting effective data-based decision-making in NeMTSS requires district and school teams to engage in the problem-solving model to drive continuous improvement of the supports for the system. Collaborative Teams and Student Support Teams engage in the problem-solving model to identify, analyze, plan, implement, and reflect on student supports.
- Communication and Collaboration:
Effective communication and collaboration hinge upon the belief that student, family, and community engagement enhance learning experiences and are culturally inclusive and relevant for each student. Student success and engagement rely on positive partnerships and relationships to fundamentally improve the outcomes for each student, school, district, and community.
There are many misconceptions of RtI and MTSS, both nationally and in Nebraska. It is essential to have a clear and concise understanding of both. To alleviate some misconceptions:
- Response to Intervention (RtI) is in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), but it is NOT only the work of Special Education.
- RtI and MTSS are NOT the same thing. Within the Layered Continuum of Support of an NeMTSS Framework, we use progress monitoring to determine if a student is responding to interventions.
- RtI goes beyond academic support. Considering the needs of the whole child, educators need to provide academic, social, emotional, behavioral, physical, and environmental support.
- Special Education is NOT Tier 3 Intensified Support.
