    Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS)

    In ISD 728 our Advanced & Gifted Learners model is based on a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS).

    TIER 1 - Effective Differentiated Core Instruction - All Students
    This tier addresses what is happening in the classroom on a daily basis for all students.  Teachers provide standards-based, differentiated core instruction.

    ISD 728 seeks to cluster students to reduce the range of instructional groups within each classroom.  This allows teachers to more effectively meet each student’s educational needs and provide beneficial peers opportunities.

    TIER 2 - Targeted Enrichment Interventions & Supports - Some Students
    Tier 2 is designed to give additional targeted instruction for students who need enrichment interventions.  Many advanced students receive this support during WIN (What I Need) time.

    TIER 3 - Intensive Enrichment Interventions & Supports - A Few Students
    For a few of our students, grade-level curriculum doesn’t meet their needs.  In those specific cases, a team collaborates to develop an individualized academic plan for the student.
