In Colorado, a Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is defined as:
a prevention-based framework of team-driven data-based problem solving
for improving the outcomes of every student through family, school, and
community partnering and a layered continuum of evidence-based practices
applied at the classroom, school, district, region, and state level.
The mission of the Office of Learning Supports (OLS) is to shape, develop, and increase the collective capacity of schools and districts to implement and sustain a multi-tiered system of supports, through a problem-solving culture that integrates data, practices, and systems which improve educational outcomes for every student.
