A multi-tiered system of supports is a comprehensive, evidence-based and systemic approach to teaching and learning that unifies general and special education in a deliberate, intentional, ongoing collaboration designed to meet academic and non-academic needs and improve learning for all students through increasingly differentiated and intensified assessment, instruction and intervention provided by qualified professionals with appropriate expertise.
