As you can see in the image above, your core instruction should be sufficient for the majority of students. We then identify students for whom this is not true, and move them onto Tier II where we add an extra layers of interventions to give them a chance to succeed. This is what we're doing with your remediation groups during Gear Up. This should then be sufficient for the majority of these Tier II students. As the year goes on, we then identify the select students for whom these interventions are still not enough to allow them to remain on grade level and move them to Tier III, which is individualized interventions. If these interventions are insufficient, then students are referred to Special Education so that they can receive the support they require. By following MTSS, we are able to provide each student with the interventions they need to be successful.
