MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Supports)

Coronado Unified School District utilizes the multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) framework at each school site.  
According to the Center on Multi-Tiered System of Supports at the American Institute for Research, a multi-tiered system of supports (MTSS) is a proactive and preventative framework that integrates data and instruction to maximize student achievement and support students' social, emotional, and behavior needs from a strengths-based perspective.
