Georgia’s Tiered System of Supports for Students (Georgia’s MTSS) is a framework that integrates assessment and intervention within a school-wide, multi-level prevention system to maximize student achievement and reduce behavioral problems. In Georgia, a three-tiered prevention system, based in the general education classroom guides teachers and leaders to routinely implement a strong and rigorous standards-based learning environment.
All students participate in general education learning. Students requiring interventions to meet individual learning expectations will receive support through a systematic and purposeful process also known as Response to Intervention or RTI. RTI is embedded within Georgia’s Tiered System of Supports for Students. The number of students requiring interventions will decrease as the level of intensity of the intervention increases.
