The MTSS journey in Pomona Unified has just begun! We are eager to work together to create a Multi-Tiered System of Supports with a foundation of equity and excellence for every student, in every classroom, every day! The MTSS Task Force will meet monthly to explore our current systems, processes, and strategies to systematize and refine our practices.
In California, MTSS core components work together to create an integrated, comprehensive framework that focus on the California State Standards, core instruction, differentiated learning, student-centered learning, individualized student needs, and the alignment of systems necessary for academic, behavior, and social success. MTSS offers the potential to create needed systematic change through intentional design and redesign of services and supports that quickly identify and match the needs of all students in general and special education contexts.
