Multiple Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS)

The Collaborative provides support for districts to fully implement Multiple Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) through a grant from the Tower Foundation.

School administrators/leaders have received consultation services during the past three years with monthly consultation on salient aspects associated with transitioning from a basic Response to Intervention (RtI) model to a systemic Multi Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) model to (more) effectively provide instructional supports and interventions.

The activities associated with this initiative provide guidance and support for the development and integration of strategies that are aimed to strengthen “core” (Tier I) classroom instruction and alternative “push-in” models for interventions (Tier II).


CCC seeks to utilize district and grant funding to further develop a regional structure that provides sustainable supports to schools as they all strive to effectively address common challenges.

The Cape Cod Collaborative (CCC) provides administrators with:

  • continued professional consultation intended to guide and improve classroom
  • articulated systems within the schools/districts to ensure that learning supports, and interventions are more effective.


What You Can Expect

Consultants will be utilized in schools and districts in various ways. In some districts the consultants will meet with instructional leaders such as department heads and team leaders. In this model the instructional leaders will take information and strategies regarding differentiation to classroom teachers to affect the needed changes in instruction.

In other locations consultants will work directly with teachers to modify their instruction and assessment to better meet the needs of all students. Consultants will make suggestions and provide models for planning and teaching lessons that meet the need of a wide range of student ability and interests in the regular classroom. Consultants will also assist district staff in tracking student progress and will check on these efforts throughout the school year.

Each district will determine the model of consultation that best suits their needs as expressed in their strategic plan.
