MTSS - A - Secondary Philosophy (6-12)
The middle and high school buildings in the Fargo Public Schools utilize a system-wide approach to MTSS. The approach is supported by a strong research base. This option uses validated interventions, selected by the district, to improve the academic skills of its struggling students. Because a consistent intervention is used, accurate implementation is ensured. Procedures are aligned to the three tiers of intervention and instruction including universal instruction, targeted intervention, and intensive intervention. Utilizing a system-wide approach allows for the adoption of general classroom instructional practices based on scientific research to support students demonstrating areas of needs with the opportunity to engage in problem solving to address concerns at the system, group, or individual student level.
