Kid President with 20 Things We Should Say More Often

From "School Leader Update"
Most of you know of and may be familiar with Response to Intervention (Rt).
RtI refers to a process by which schools use data to identify the academic and behavioral supports each and every student needs to be successful in school and leave school ready for life. The process provides students with evidence-based instruction and interventions matched to their needs and monitors student progress to improve their educational outcomes.
Well, now you'll start seeing MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Supports)
MTSS also refers to this same process, yet also denotes both systemic and sustained sup-port across all areas within our educational system – from the individual student level to the classroom to the school, district, intermediary agencies and the state.
Nationally, MTSS is more commonly used; therefore Iowa is transitioning from RtI to MTSS, though these two terms may be used interchangeably. It is important to note, however, that the concepts and work will not change, except to underscore focused support for systems change to create a system that has the availability of a continuum of multiple supports for all students.
