Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS)

At STEM School Highlands Ranch, a layered continuum of prevention-based supports are in place to improve the outcomes of every student. The framework of a Multi-Tiered System of Supports encompasses support of Health & Wellness, Behavior, Family & Community, Academic and Mental Health.

Response to Intervention (RtI)

Within the MTSS framework, we provide a tiered system of academic and behavioral support to help students progress towards their educational goals. The RtI program is the first step in helping the educational team (parents, student, teachers) identify the needs of the student. RtI interventions plans are managed by team coordinators and interventions are provided by STEM classroom teachers.

Classroom Teacher

The MTSS and RtI process is managed by grade level MTSS coordinators and an Assistant Director.
