Overview of the KyMTSS System

What is KyMTSS?

KyMTSS is a multi-level prevention system to support student achievement and social-emotional behavioral competencies through an integration of differentiated core instruction, assessment and intervention.

What do the components of the KyMTSS graphic represent?

The Equitable Access and Opportunity component surrounds the framework to represent the intentional commitment to equity embedded within all components of KyMTSS.

At the center of the model is the familiar triangle representing the Tiered Delivery System with a continuum of supports designed to meet the academic, behavioral and social-emotional needs of all students.

Collaborative Problem-Solving Teams, the strategic use of Data-Based Decision Making within a comprehensive screening and assessment system, Evidence-Based Instruction, Intervention and Supports, and Family, School and Community Partnerships surround the triangle to show that they are interconnected and address the needs of the whole learner at each level of the system.

What the elements of the KyMTSS logo represent: Equitable access and opportunity, collaborative problem solving teams, data-based decision making with a system of screening and assessment, evidence based practices, family and community partnerships, and tiered systems of intervention including emotional, behavioral, and social emotional.

KyMTSS Crosswalk Document

The purpose of this document is to provide clarity to educators (e.g., leadership teams, administrators, teachers, implementation support staff, etc.) on how Response to Intervention (RTI), Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and the Interconnected Systems Framework (ISF) share foundational components and are integrated under the overarching framework of Kentucky Multi-Tiered System of Supports (KyMTSS).
