Academic Interventions & Support

Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) 

MTSS in Irvine Unified School District is a systematic process that helps schools align resources, programs, and supports to meet the needs of all students. MTSS is guided by a shared belief that all students can learn at high levels and a collective responsibility to ensure that every student is successful. Through a systematic process based on assessment and data students are matched to increasingly intensive supports that meet their needs in all areas. This framework not only allows for decisions to be made about individual students, it is also used to drive decision-making across all levels of the school.

 

Currently, school sites have an MTSS team committed to the development and implementation of an MTSS framework at their site.

Academic Interventions
 

A well designed MTSS framework includes multiple tiers of instruction and supports to meet the needs of all students within the school.  These tiers increase in intensity, providing a continuum of supports that is flexible, differentiated, ongoing, and targeted to the specific needs of each student. 

 

A variety of intervention programs are available in English Language Arts and Mathematics from kindergarten through grade 12. Please contact your child’s school to learn more about the specific programs available to support students. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Title 1

Title I, Part A, of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) provides federal funds to support effective, research-based educational strategies that close the achievement gap.  In Irvine, several schools are funded for targeted assistance.  At these sites, Title 1 Coordinators work with site MTSS teams to identify students who are eligible to receive targeted supports based on their individual academic needs.
