JHS MULTI-TIERED SYSTEM OF SUPPORT (MTSS)

We, at Jamestown Public Schools, are constantly striving for ways to support all of our students in becoming academically successful. Through our Multi-Tier System of Supports (MTSS), we are able to teach each child at their level of performance and rate of progression. Students who are identified as needing additional support in their learning will be receiving instruction in a research based reading or math intervention. These interventions have been proven to show results in student achievement.

To determine whether a student qualifies for a reading or math intervention, our schools use the STAR Assessment, NDSA data, Easy CBM data, grades, and teacher perception data. The STAR Assessment is a universal screening that we use to show the progress of all students in our district. Once a student is identified, they are given a placement test within the intervention for which they qualify.

Data analysis and decision making occur at all levels of instruction and intervention within an MTSS system for English Language Arts and Math. Benchmark, Strategic, and Intensive class offerings are informed directly by student performance data. All measures used at JHS produce normative data based on national sample populations.
