Welcome to Intervention! I support all students as they learn and grow. I help make sure our instruction matches the needs of each child by maintaining student instructional data and helping students make good decisions. We believe every child can learn at a high level, and MTSS is one way we support students individual academic and behavioral needs.

Colorado has adopted the Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) framework as a continuum of effective academic and behavioral instruction that supports every student. MTSS is a whole-school prevention-based framework for improving learning outcomes for every student through a layered continuum of evidence-based practices and systems.

The 6 essential components we work through are the MTSS Foundational steps: Shared Leadership, Data-Based Problem Solving and Decision Making, Layered Continuum of Supports, Evidence-Based Instruction, Intervention, and Assessment Practices, Universal Screening and Progress Monitoring, Family, School, and Community Partnering.
