Colorado Multi-Tiered System of Supports (CO-MTSS)

Detailed Information on CO-MTSS (PDF)

Introduction

Colorado Multi-Tiered System of Supports (CO-MTSS) is defined as a prevention-based framework of team-driven data-based problem solving for improving the outcomes of every student through family, school, and community partnering and a layered continuum of evidence-based practices applied at the classroom, school, district, region, and state level. Our mission is to shape, develop, and increase the collective capacity of schools and districts to implement and sustain a multi-tiered system of supports through a problem-solving culture that integrates data, practices, and systems to improve educational outcomes for every student.

CO-MTSS sees our partnerships with districts as an integral collaboration to achieve five major goals: 1) increase state leadership capacity for CO-MTSS infrastructure; 2) increase regional and district CO-MTSS capacity and sustainability; 3) increase preschool-12, school level capacity for CO-MTSS through the implementation of evidence-based practices, data-based problem solving, and short-cycle action planning; 4) support improved teacher effectiveness in the classroom; and 5) increase partnering with families, schools, and the community.
