Hillsborough County Public School’s MTSS-RtI Department provide our schools with a framework and process to ensure students have an opportunity to receive multi-tiered instruction/interventions within the general education environment with fidelity. The district’s framework incorporates a problem solving process for ensuring quality instruction and school-wide behavior supports are delivered to ALL students.
Further, resources and support are provided for schools to ensure interventions are matched to students’ needs, in the areas of academics, behavior and attendance. Many parents would like schools to provide a framework holistic supports child, the MTSS-RtI framework does just that. Within HCPS, MTSS-RtI provides a framework for evidence-based instructional and intervention supports to be delivered at increasing levels of intensity in a 3 tiered model. These levels of are often referenced as: Tier 1 (School-wide supports for all children); Tier 2 (Supplemental interventions for some children), and Tier 3 (Intensive individualized interventions for few students). The district’s MTSS-RtI Team is available to support parents, community stakeholders and schools while ensuring ALL students have an opportunity to be successful in school.
