Armona Union Elementary School District (AUESD) has designed a comprehensive universal screening of all students that aligns academic, behavioral, and social-emotional learning in a fully integrated system of support that benefits ALL students. The Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) offers the potential to create needed systematic change through intentional design and the redesign of services and supports in order to quickly identify and match student needs. The integrated data collection and assessment system assists in making appropriate informed decisions at each tier of instruction.

AUESD has created the MTSS model to strengthen school, family, and community partnerships while developing the whole child in the most inclusive, equitable learning environment thus closing the equity gaps for all students. The MTSS structure embodies an integrated, comprehensive framework that focuses on instructional standards, core instruction, differentiated learning, student-centered learning, individualized student needs, and the alignment of systems necessary for all students’ academic, behavioral, and social success.

In short, the District’s MTSS model addresses the needs of ALL students, aligns the entire system of initiatives, supports, and resources and implements continuous improvement processes at all levels of the system at Parkview Middle School.
