About MTSS

Please note that this site is under construction. 

In the meantime, please check out our 2018 Fall MTSS Newsletter and the 2019 Spring MTSS Newsletter.

NMSD has adopted a multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) model of prevention.  This MTSS model is designed to address our students' academic, behavioral, and social needs using a continuum of supports, including a proactive approach for addressing the needs of the Whole Child.  We have established systematic screening practices and a continuum of supports, ranging from opportunities provided to all students, to targeted supports for those who need them.  The three-tiered model provides for:  Tier 1 (supports for all), Tier 2 (supports for some), and Tier 3 (supports for a few). 

The goal is to create a safe, positive learning environment including the accurate detection of students who need additional support beyond Tier and then providing these students with additional Tier 2 and Tier 3 supports. 



A district manual is currently being developed. Currently we have developed common definitions for each tier. You can view these definitions here
