Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)
Tiered Delivery System
A 3 tiered system of service is a necessary structure to efficiently and effectively support the whole child. Each tier has a set of evidence-based practices to meet those needs. The levels of support provided are determined by data.
MTSS Key Terms
Defining Tier 1
Tier 1 Instruction in the Lansing School District is considered the primary component of tiered instruction. All students receive Tier 1 Instruction on a daily basis in the general education setting through the LSD Workshop Model with differentiated instructional practices and strategies to scaffold the learning targets. It must include grade level standards and district adopted curricular tools.
Tier 1 and the Workshop Model
- Grade level standards (teacher planning)
- Access to Guaranteed, equitable, and viable curriculum (LSD adopted curriculum)
- Provides differentiation during core instruction for diverse learners. (do now, direct instruction, worktime)
- Data-driven (formative assessment, debriefing, teacher planning)
Without access to strong Tier 1 grade level instruction and content, student learning can be delayed, creating gaps in academic knowledge and skills.

Gradual Release Model
Direct Instruction (mini-lesson) follows the gradual release model, in which the teacher first demonstrates the teaching point, models the new learning (I Do), then provides the students guided practice (We Do).
