Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
The MBUSD Board Goal 1 is to maximize the academic success of all students. We are proud and excited to share with you the important work that we are doing to provide your child with the support they need to be successful. We will call this focused proactive approach to systematizing, organizing, and providing support: “MTSS”. Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS). OR MTSS provides a framework for addressing the needs of the whole child.
What is MTSS?
MBUSD’s Multi-Tiered System of Supports also known as MTSS defines a system that includes support in the areas of social-emotional, behavior, and academics to ensure every learner can be successful.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
UDL is the design and delivery of curriculum and instruction to meet the needs of all learners by providing them choices for what they are learning, why they are learning, and how they will share what they have learned (Novak, 2016)
A central component of all MTSS models is an early screening of all students to identify those at risk for academic, social-emotional, and/or behavior difficulties.
STAR Reading, STAR Early Literacy, and STAR Math are standardized, computer-adaptive assessments created by Renaissance Learning, Inc.
MBUSD students in grades 1-8 are administered STAR three times a year. Results are used in conjunction with other formative assessments to determine Tier 2 interventions.
