Multi-Tiered System of Supports

Guide to Understanding CA MTSS 

California's Multi-Tiered System of Support (CA MTSS) Framework promotes the maxim "All Means All" which ensures LEAs and schools successfully implement efforts to meet the needs of each and every student allowing all students to participate in the general education curriculum, instruction, and activities of their grade level peers. The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP), aligned to California's Eight State Priorities, provide the infrastructure for building a statewide system of support - California's Multi-Tiered System of Support Framework is the driver for implementation. 

The Guide to Understanding CA MTSS is available to download (CA MTSS Guide.pdf ) or by ordering from the OCDE Instructional Services iStore ( OCDE iStore ).
