New Jersey Multi Tiered System of Support


    The district is committed to providing students with the best advantage to overcome barriers to learning in the classroom and teachers with the tools to make this happen.  To assist teachers in their efforts to provide interventions for their students the district will be implementing the New Jersey Multi-Tiered System of Support (NJMTSS).  As we know, some students’ learning styles or processes require different strategies and different materials in addition to the materials used. NJMTSS utilizes a three-tiered approach with varying levels of support beyond the general education, or core curriculum. NJMTSS builds on Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) and gives schools structure to meet the academic, behavioral, health, enrichment and social/emotional needs of all students. This will happen in phases over several school years. The teachers and administrators will work together to successfully adopt this model.



    We believe that we have the responsibility to make ALL students successful

    and we do that one child at a time!
