The vision of the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction is every
student graduates ready for career, college and life. The Washington State
Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS) is an action framework that structures
service delivery to assist staff and students to create a culture for learning.
The key components of the Washington MTSS framework includes:
- Transformational leadership – creating purpose and
relational trust that engage staff and students
- Collaborative inquiry – practices that involve
staff in action research to improve teaching and learning
- Tiered support system – integrated supports for
behavior, achievement, and social emotional needs
- Data – evidence-based processes that monitor and
connect staff and students to a system of supports
MTSS is a framework to help students graduate from high school ready for
career, college, and life. It offers different levels of academic and
nonacademic services and supports based on individual student needs.
The success of MTSS is assessed by continuous monitoring of OSPI’s
research-based dropout prevention and graduation performance indicators using
the OSPI Data Gateway:
